RSE responds to clarified Anti-Lobbying Clause

Posted 19/04/2016

Following the statement to the House of Lords by Lord Bridges of Headley, indicating that neither the Research Councils, Higher Education Funding Council for England or the National Academies will be covered by the new Anti-Lobbying Clause, the President of the RSE, Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell commented, “The RSE welcomes the clause not applying to expert advice coming from all branches of knowledge. We are pleased to see that the Government recognises the expertise available outside Westminster that they should draw on.”
