Becky Jarvis, of 38 Degrees, talks to the host of Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi, about the dangers of recently passed 'gagging law'. It puts a binding cap on campaigning by charities and NGOs in the run-up to general elections, although corporate lobbying will still be going strong in the corridors of power. Charities and non-political organisations fear they will no longer be able to fight for causes like the NHS, education and social welfare.
