Hi Paul, please see and related links. It seems to me that we should have an umbrella article on the general global issue of regulating lobbying and then break out side pages on country by country material. (Some of the material on the existing SW page should be moved to the European page)

There is also a question of terminology lobbying disclosure vs regulating lobbying. I prefer the latter as it goes to the heart of the public policy debate over a regulatory based scheme vs a self-regulatory scheme the lobbying/PR industry proposes when under pressure. Lobbying disclosure, in my view, is a by-product of the regulatory regime. Your thoughts? Cheers --Bob Burton 18:12, 4 May 2007 (EDT)
