All government departments are lobbies for the pressure groups they deal with.
The Department of Education lobbies the government on behalf of teachers,
the Department of Health lobbies for the doctors and hospital unions,
the Department of Energy lobbies for oil companies and so on.
Each department of State is actually controlled by the people it is supposed to be controlling.
