The big corporations will be out in force, rubbing shoulders with ministers

From Private Eye magazine - 15 Sept. 06

'Labour Conference (2006) Special' -

Delegates to the Labour Party Conference in Manchester may be looking forward to big changes at the top, but on the fringes it will be 'business' as usual.

The big corporations will be out in force, rubbing shoulders with ministers at the usual round of self-interested meetings masquerading as policy discussions.......

Mobile Phones

Lord Sainsbury meanwhile will discuss how the media should respond to science "scare stories" at a meeting sponsored by the Mobile Operators Association. He will speak alongside the trade body's own Mike Dolan.

The phone operators are keen to get Labour onside in the many local battles they face to get their phone masts built and conference will host a rash of other ministers-and-mobiles meetings too.

Financially challenged '3mobile' is sponsoring a separate get together with Culture Minister Tessa Jowell (in charge of telecom regulator OfCom) and Home Office Minister Liam Byrne.

O2 meanwhile is paying for a meeting with Jowell, hosted by another Labour-linked think-tank the Institute for Public Policy Research.
