The Transparency of Lobbying, Non-party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act 2014 (the "Act"), which is better known as the Lobbying Act, received royal assent on 30 January 2014. The Act alters the rules on non-party campaigning which will affect a large number of charities when they come into effect on 19 September 2014.
