Premier Alan Carpenter today released the Contact with Lobbyists Code, which will underpin the operations of the Register of Lobbyists.

Tabling the code in State Parliament, Mr Carpenter said lobbyists could now apply online to the Director General of the Department of Premier and Cabinet to be included on the Register of Lobbyists.

The Premier told Parliament that Brian Burke, Julian Grill and Noel Crichton-Browne would be disqualified from the register.

“My Government recognises that lobbying is a legitimate part of the democratic process and in Western Australia, the overwhelming majority of lobbyists are honest, decent individuals who operate according to ethical business practices,” he said.

“Unfortunately, the reputation of lobbying and lobbyists has been sullied through the actions of Burke, Grill and Crichton-Browne.

“Evidence submitted to the recent Corruption and Crime Commission hearings has shown that these three characters have, at the very least, shown an absolute contempt for standards of political probity and a total disregard of the ethics expected of individuals operating in public life.”

The Contact with Lobbyists Code establishes rules for contact between lobbyists and Ministers, Ministerial staff, parliamentary secretaries and public sector employees; and standards of conduct for lobbyists who wish to be included on the Register of Lobbyists.

Mr Carpenter said the code was deliberately minimalist in its approach.

“It applies only to lobbyists who represent third parties,” he said.

“It does not apply to business lobby groups, trade unions, religious or charitable bodies and recognised professional and technical occupations.”

The Register of Lobbyists will come into effect from April 16 and will be administered by the Director General of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, who has the authority to accept or reject applications or to remove lobbyists from the register.

The dedicated website address for the register is http://www.lobbyistsregister.dpc.wa.gov.au
