A group of MEPs have backed calls for greater transparency for ex-commissioners moving into potentially lucrative lobbying jobs.


Speaking on Thursday, the cross-party group demanded "far stricter" rules than those proposed in a new code of conduct. The code relates to the controversial issue of ‘revolving doors’ that has caused a wave of criticism in recent months.
