Who’s Lobbying Parliament


The Who's Lobbying project reveals for the first time which groups are most often giving oral evidence to Parliament committees. We analysed oral evidence witness lists scraped from the Parliament website, and produced three top ten lists: 1) organisations giving most oral evidence; 2) industries giving most oral evidence; and 3) organisational categories giving most oral evidence.

Ideas for taking this project forward

The software at Who's Lobbying will keep scraping oral evidence witnesses from the Parliament website.

The oral evidence witness list by committee could be made available via an API. The Who's Lobbying website could make this available - but ultimately the data.parliament.uk website could add this to its API.

Estimated costs for taking this project forward
