You can also email or post on any of our social media channels. If you prefer to send your thoughts to us not in writting (such as video or sound cloud), please attach or send a link., twitter, facebook or LinkedIn.

Questions we are asking:

  • How effective has the Government’s e-petitions system been in enabling the public to engage with parliamentarians and the democratic process?
  • How best can video and webcasting be used to encourage greater engagement?
  • How should MPs and Parliament ensure digital inclusiveness?
  • What are the downsides of technology for MPs and how can they be overcome? These might include the additional overheads of using digital and traditional working methods side by side, online abuse, etc.

Facilitating dialogue amongst citizens: 

  • Should Parliament (or Government) have a role in facilitating dialogue amongst citizens?
  • Is it important for citizens to have an online platform or other medium for discussing political issues and the work of Government and Parliament? If so, who should be responsible for providing it – Government, Parliament, or the private sector?
  • Will future tools make it easier to facilitate dialogue, and if so how?
