Commonwealth Day: Monday 12 March 2012

On Monday 12 March 2012, Commonwealth nations celebrated Commonwealth Day in the year of Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, and marked the launch of this year's Commonwealth theme 'Connecting Cultures.'

The celebrations coincided with the first day of CPA UK's 2nd Westminster Workshop, this year focusing on the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

Some 64 delegates from Commonwealth parliaments are attending the four-day programme, which will focus on general principles of effective PACs as well as the specific challenges faced by both large and small legislatures.

To mark the occasion, a small group of delegates participating in the Westminster Workshop attended a meeting with HM The Queen at Marlborough House.
