'How the UK Parliament Works' - Free Event (Venue: Derby)
Public participation with Parliament is crucial, providing valuable evidence and real-life stories to inform the work of MPs and Members of the House of Lords. This free "Understanding Parliament" event is open to anyone who wants to learn more about the UK Parliament and how to get involved.
The event opens with an overview of Parliament’s work by Clare Mullin, UK Parliament Community Engagement Officer for the East Midlands. Additional speakers will focus on law-making and committee work in more depth.
Sign up for this free event to get:
- Unique insights from experts from the UK Parliament on how to engage with Parliament
- A greater understanding of how MPs and Members of the House of Lords check and challenge Government through scrutinising legislation and select committee inquiries
- Guidance on how you can get involved and directly engage with the scrutiny process by submitting written evidence to select committee inquiries
- Advice on how to find out what topics are being examined by select committees
There will be lots of opportunities to ask our panel of experts questions about the UK Parliament.
