The Standards of Conduct Committee made a commitment to review the issue of lobbying in Wales regularly, and as such has agreed to undertake an inquiry into lobbying and Cross-Party Groups in the Sixth Senedd.


At present the Senedd has guidance in relation to lobbying which was agreed by a resolution in Plenary in 2013, as well as rules in relation to Cross-Party Groups, which were also introduced in 2013. 


The Fifth Senedd Standards of Conduct Committee considered lobbying, but did not make any changes to the current arrangements. In previous Senedd inquiries, it was not perceived that there was any particular lobbying problem in Wales at that time.
