Time to restore trust - support for lobbyist reforms
“Time to restore respect” - McGowan backs move for lobbyist reform
Independent Member for Indi Cathy McGowan has thrown her support behind measures proposed by Senator Jacqui Lambie to reform rules for lobbyists.
“I welcome Senator Lambie’s action. It’s time to restore respect and trust in the system,” Ms McGowan said.
“Lobbying is an important way people can participate in the democratic process. It must be transparent and equally available to all.”
Ms McGowan has acted consistently during her two terms for better governance and accountability in the Parliament.
“As an independent voice my call to the government is for effective change to make sure processes in parliament reflect community expectations,” Ms McGowan said.
“Enshrining these expectations in law would be an important step forward.”
