Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS)

The Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS) works with the House of Commons, the House of Lords, and Parliament staff on their IT and digital needs.

We think it’s important that everyone can access and understand what’s going on in Parliament. Our goal is to bring together the public, Parliament Members, and Parliamentary staff to inform, engage, support, and communicate through one, unified digital core – PDS.

We’re in the process of making Parliament and its activities more accessible to the public by helping to

  • give you the information you’re looking for, like reports shared by committees, research briefings, transcripts from debates, and updates about laws
  • connect with you on the issues you’re interested or passionate about, like asking for evidence on issues
  • engage with you on social as well as sharing media, content, and events
  • update our site with web-friendly, plain English information and resources
