On Tuesday 17 June at 3.30pm, the Speaker’s Commission discussed the changing nature of representation in a digital age.
The Speaker’s Commission on Digital Democracy discussed how digital can enhance representation within Parliament. The meeting was open to the public and the Commissioners heard from experts before opening up the meeting to a 30 minute public question and answer session with the audience.
Representation is the third of the Commission's five themes. A similar session on the final two themes, Engagement and Facilitating Dialogue amongst citizens, will take place on Tuesday 15 July.
