Former RIBA chief executive takes up transparency role this week
Harry Rich, the former RIBA chief executive, is to be the government’s next lobbying tsar.
Rich’s appointment as the new registrar of consultant lobbyists, a job he described as a “challenge and an important opportunity”, was confirmed yesterday. He begins at the end of this week.
The part-time job, created by the Lobbying Act in 2014, comes with a salary of £420 a day.
The Cabinet Office estimated the role would take up 30 to 40 days a year but the departing registrar, Alison White, reported that she worked 65.5 days in 2016/17, which would equate to £27,510 for less than 1.5 days a week.
