Note from the new Registrar

Friday 5th October 2018

As the newly appointed Registrar I am looking forward to working with all those with
an interest in the transparency of the work of consultant lobbyists with Ministers and
Permanent Secretaries on behalf of clients.

My core statutory focus is on maintaining an accurate register and I am encouraged
that the overwhelming majority of those who are required to register or provide
information do so. The Office of the Registrar and I will support compliance by being
responsive to enquiries and by providing clear guidance and I hope to use my
enforcement powers rarely.

I would like to thank my predecessor Alison White for her impressive work since
2014 in establishing Office of the Registrar and the register and then maintaining it
so effectively.
