When does a Blogger, talking about himself, turn into an Inquisitor asking lots of questions? That is what I want to become.
The Lords Information Committee, of which I am the proud chairman, is starting an inquiry this week in which we want to find out your thoughts about Parliament in general and the House of Lords in particular. We are calling it “People and Parliament”.
We are asking straightforward questions that we hope you will want to answer.
Parliament is, after all, the place where laws are decided and the long-term future of the UK is changed.
- How could the House of Lords improve public understanding of its work?
- How could the House of Lords increase people’s interest in its work and Members?
- How could the House of Lords best enable people to interact with it?
We’re also particularly interested in hearing the views of young people and how they view the House of Lords.
In addition to the eConsultation, which is aimed at the general public, the Information Committee is also asking more detailed questions about online communication and engagement. The questions can be found in the Information Committee’s call for evidence.
Please also watch our YouTube video – we would like you to post video responses to this film (via Parliament’s YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnPWORmLZF8) suggesting how we can improve understanding of the work and role of the House of Lords.
