Abstract: The current debate in Scotland around the scope and impact of Lobbying (Scotland) Bill 2016 has been characterised by a number of claims and concerns that appear to be largely based on projections or perceptions of lobbying disclosure, rather than an assessment of experience elsewhere. This is particularly the case in relation to the impact lobbying disclosure may have on the charitable and voluntary sectors, the so-called 'democratic chill' where registration is presumed to create a barrier to accessing the Parliament and inhibiting participation in the political process by small voluntary organisations.
