The Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) has welcomed Ruth Davidson’s decision to turn down a role at Tulchan Communications. The PRCA had previously condemned the original appointment, arguing it was unethical for legislators to work for lobbying agencies.
Francis Ingham MPRCA, Director General, PRCA said: “I’d like to congratulate Ruth Davidson on making the right call in these challenging circumstances. This is a good decision for the industry and for politics in general. Our Code of Conduct explicitly prohibits sitting MPs and MSPs from working for lobbying agencies. It’s reassuring that Tulchan Communications have supported her decision and reaffirms our belief that the public affairs industry is overwhelmingly ethical.”
