About this event
The UK Parliament checks and challenges the work of government, makes and shapes new laws and debates and makes decisions on the big issues of the day.
After a very brief introduction to the UK Parliament, we will focus on the practicalities of working with members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, including using resources such as Hansard, the libraries and the Parliamentary office of Science and Technology (POST) and All Party Parliamentary Groups (APPG’s).
We will also look at how you can work with Select Committees in both Houses and how to engage with the legislative process.
We will also have time for a Q&A within this session.
Lynn Hobson is the Senior Education and Engagement Officer for the North East of England, Yorkshire and Humberside at the UK Parliament.
Chaired by Dr Donna Smith, Senior Lecturer and Staff Tutor in Politics at The Open University.
