This is a brief post to say thank you to the people who made it this evening to our public meeting on lobbying transparency, despite the very inclement weather! Many thanks to our guest speakers Tamasin Cave of Spin Watch, Paul Blomfield MP and Cllr Joe Otten. It was great to have so many people (more than 60!) attend and to have so many suggestions and comments from members of the public.
Thank you also to Unlock Democracy for helping to organise and promote the event and to the team at the Quaker Meeting Rooms for hosting us and providing refreshments.
We will be compiling a report of the comments and suggestions made during the meeting and will publish it on this website within the next week.
Please note that the government’s consultation has been extended until next Friday so please submit any suggestions or comments you might have as soon as possible.
Webmaster, Sheffield for Democracy
