Lobbying (Scotland) Act 2016

Section 1: Additions to the Schedule

36.Section 1(5) of the Act provides that the Parliament may by resolution modify the schedule so as to add further descriptions of kinds of communications (which if added would then also be communications which are not lobbying for the purposes of the Act, i.e. the making of which will not amount to engaging in regulated lobbying under the Act) or to modify or remove such descriptions added. Section 48 makes provision in relation to the process to be followed in relation to parliamentary resolutions, including provision for them to be published in the same way as Scottish statutory instruments so that they are published in a recognised format and are easily accessible.
