This is perhaps an especially apt post given Lord Renton’s guest contribution.
I mentioned in an earlier post that I would be trying to get a debate this session on improving the ways in which Parliament communicates with the public. I am pleased to report that I have been successful in the ballot and have secured a two-and-a-half hour debate on Thursday of next week (18 December).
The motion is ‘to call attention to the case for enhancing Parliament’s ability to communicate with members of the public’. I shall be emphasising that this encompasses not only Parliament communicating with the public but also members of the public being able to communicate with Parliament. If any readers have suggestions they wish to make for improving communications – over and above the suggestions made in response to my earlier posts – then I will be delighted to have them and, as appropriate, to draw on them for the debate.
