Summary of Investigation – Inflect Partners Limited
Tuesday 21st March 2023
Organisation or Person Investigated
Inflect Partners Limited (“Inflect”)
Whether Inflect conducted unregistered consultant lobbying
Based on substantive and comprehensive assurances given, Inflect has not conducted unregistered consultant lobbying.
Summary of Rationale for Decision
The communications with government ministers were not ‘on behalf of a client’, which is one of the tests in the Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act 2014 (‘the Act’). This is based on assurances from Inflect and provision of relevant communications. Communications were sent in Emily Wallace’s role as Trade Association Forum (“TAF”) CEO, not in her role as Director of Inflect. The email address and branding used was TAF only.
