A client currently uses two different agencies, both APPC members. They are going through a period of intense media scrutiny and are being criticised for spending money on lobbyists. Although they want to keep using both agencies, they have asked to come off the APPC register for one of the agencies at least for the next quarter until the media attention dies down.

If a client has engaged more than one agency to provide PA services, each agency must declare thatclient on the APPC register.

Clause 18 of the APPC Code of Conduct states

Members must disclose the names of all their clients and practitioners in the APPC Register.  A member providing secretariat or other services for an All-Party Parliamentary Group must list that APPG as a client, together with the name(s) of the APPG’s funder(s) and any associated organisation(s).
