Let’s also ban excessive pay for charity bosses
Organisations receiving government grants will be banned from using these taxpayer funds to lobby government & Parliament.  A new clause to be inserted into all new & renewed grant agreements will make sure that taxpayer funds are spent on improving people’s lives & good causes, rather than lobbying for new regulation or using taxpayers’ money to lobby for more government funding.  It will not prevent organisations from using their own privately-raised funds to campaign as they see fit.
