Connecting Parliament to the Public
Lord Renton of Mount Harry will today initiate a debate of an hour during the 'dinner break' in the House of Lords - by posing the following question to the Government: "what steps they are taking to increase the connection between Parliament and the public."
While some proposals were made last week - this could lead to a wider debate. Lord Renton is the Chair of the Lords Information Committee, which is conducting an inquiry into "People and Parliament". On the 'Lords of the Blog' he has discussed the inquiry http://lordsoftheblog.wordpress.com/2009/03/18/guest-blog-people-and-parliament/
