    Because of the strategic position that they hold in society, the National Farmers Union for example controls a large proportion of the production of food, so it would be illogical for them to not give them insider status as government works closely with them to produce favourable policies.

    See your notes, search the internet. Why do people make threads like these when the answers are so obvious when you revise/study? This is literally an AO1 question- which means knowledge and no higher level analysis or evaluation (A03/A04).

    To contribute: One point can be a pressure group has a large strategic group of people. I.e. Age UK has many pensioners, and pensioners/the elderly have a very high voter turnout. Therefore it is beneficial for the government to negotiate with this pressure group at the policy-making process in order to keep the elderly vote, as it could be decisive.
