CIPR's UKLR and Public Affairs Group co-sponsor House of Commons reception

Join us for the Debating Group's annual reception

The CIPR run United Kingdom Lobbying Register (UKLR) and Public Affairs Group are delighted to announce their co-sponsorship of the Debating Group’s 43rd Annual Reception on Monday July 9 in the Terrace Pavillion at the House of Commons.

The Debating Group has been holding debates in the House of Commons since 1975 and brings together public relations practitioners, marketers, politicians, journalists and the public together to discuss political issues surrounding their respective industries.

This popular reception, hosted by the Group’s President, the Rt Hon Dame Cheryl Gillan DBE MP, will bring together politicians and colleagues and members from the sponsoring organisations. These include the Advertising Association, Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Market Research Society.

Chair of the CIPR Public Affairs Group, Christine Quigley said:

Sponsoring such an event and supporting the great work the Debating Group does for the industry will provide CIPR members with a unique opportunity to meet likeminded professionals in similar professions in the most iconic of venues. It also provides us with an opportunity to discuss the exciting plans of the Public Affairs Group and, more widely, through the UKLR, promote an ethical and transparent approach to lobbying.
Christine Quigley MCIPR, CIPR Public Affairs Group Chair
