Crackdown on Lobbyists

Chancellor, Alistair Darling, is expected to crack down on the hiring of lobbying firms by quangos which are paid by the taxpayer. Conservatives are putting the pressure on, after attempts to quash their criticism of WRAP, the Government funded Waste Resources Action Programme, by external lobbying firms.

Also in the Daily Mail, chief of WRAP, Liz Goodwin, who was alleged to have been paid more last year than the Prime Minister.

Salvo is not anti-WRAP and has indeed worked as consultants on two WRAP projects in the past 10 years. But WRAP has not exactly endeared itself to the reclaimed building material sector due to its historic encouragement on recycling - which means destroying reclaimable building materials - instead of reusing them.
