Are you interested in finding out how you can have your say on a proposed law that is progressing through Parliament?

Parliament’s Outreach Service is providing a free Public Bill Seminar on Thursday 5 June 2014, for individuals and groups interested in finding out how to engage with Parliament’s scrutiny of legislation.

The Queen will formally open the 2014-2015 Parliamentary session with the Queen’s Speech at the State Opening of Parliament on 4 June 2014.
