Update on a new clause to be inserted into grant agreements

Government to continue considering the comments of all interested parties ahead of the introduction into grant agreements of the clause.

This government is committed to ensuring that taxpayer funds are spent on improving people’s lives and good causes, rather than improper lobbying for new regulation or for more government funding.

As we set out on 19 April, we are continuing to consider the comments of all interested parties ahead of the introduction into grant agreements of the clause aimed at protecting taxpayers’ money from being wasted on government lobbying government.

We are pausing the implementation pending a review of the representations made and we will take a decision on the form of the clause following this review.

Revised interim guidance will be published in due course.
