Letter: In brief

Sir: Your article "Lobbyists gifts are banned for Scots" (30 April) overlooked that most professional lobbyists are regulated by the Association of Professional Political Consultants. Our rules on financial relationships between lobbyists and legislators have for some time anticipated the inception of the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh and Northern Ireland Assemblies . There are therefore already tight curbs on lobbyists' dealings with the new Parliament and there is no question of MSPs being offered money or any other benefit in kind by a regulated lobbyist.
