The Scottish Government is taking a Bill through parliament to make lobbying and private influence in Government decisions more transparent - but we think it could be much better. The Government can and should go further to ensure the Scottish public are not kept in the dark about who meets their representatives and civil servants, or how much is being spent on trying to change the laws that affect all of us. 

This bill could be huge step forward for lobbying transparency, and an example for the rest of the world to follow but only if we let our representatives know much we care about democracy.
