Registration Of Lobbyists And Public Relations Firms

EDM number 582 in 1989-90, proposed by Joseph Ashton on 20/02/1990.

That this House calls on the Leader of the House to insist that all public relations firms and lobbyists must be registered and have to apply for his permission to conduct their business on parliamentary premises following the incident at 7.15 p.m. on Monday 19th February when the firm of Flashman Hillard blocked New Palace Yard with 30 empty taxis to take scores of Members to a free dinner at the Inn on the Park laid on by the Pharmaceutical Society, thereby rendering it impossible for other taxis to enter to reach the queue of other Members who had to wait 20 to 25 minutes longer than necessary because of the contemptuous way it was arranged.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
