Clean Up Cardiff Bay

Take our democracy back! Clean up Cardiff Bay!

Welsh politicians are meant to work for you. But Cardiff Bay is full of lobbyists working for whoever will pay them the most money to get our politicians working for them instead.

And the rules are simply not there to stop it happening. We don't know who's paying these commercial lobbyists, we don't know what politicians they're meeting, we don't know what laws they're trying to change. Worse still, many lobbyists hold significant official positions within political parties, where they can influence party policies from the inside. This is really hurting our Welsh democracy.

We can't let the National Assembly for Wales carry on like this. We need to take action right now and make it a legal requirement for:

  • a full register of lobbyists to be kept.
  • registered lobbyists to publish who their clients are, how much money their clients are paying them, all meetings registered lobbyists have with politicians and what laws they were meeting to discuss.
  • a ban on registered lobbyists from holding any official position within a registered political party.

Let's Clean Up Cardiff Bay and take our Welsh democracy back today.
