“Some people think that they can only get involved in politics at election time. Many don’t think that they have the relevant experience or knowledge to take part in debates with MPS. Through the development of digital debates, the House of Commons Digital Outreach team are trying to help people be aware of what is happening in Parliament and that there are opportunities whey they have the experience and knowledge to confidently participate and have their voices heard on issues that affect their lives.
The Digital Outreach Team are trialling getting the public involved with Westminster Hall debates and getting their thoughts and opinions heard by MPs taking part in the debate. As a result I would love to hear your thoughts, opinions, suggestions on how to make this trial a success.”
Time: 4pm – 6pm
Location: Café Zest, 2nd floor House of Fraser, 101 Victoria St London SW1E 6QX.
(The postcode will take you south of the river so it’s probably best to search for “House of Fraser Victoria” on google maps)
