Abstract: Of all the nations of Western Europe lobbying is the most developed in Britain. For this reason the story of how lobbying has infiltrated the corridors of power in the UK is of particular interest. This paper examines the rise and contemporary practice of lobbying in the UK. The industry today faces a number of challenges not least of which are questions of conflicts of interest, secrecy, privileged access and undue influence which increasingly lead to calls for greater transparency.
