VIEWING PARLIAMENTARY PROCEEDINGS ONLINE

That this House notes the imperative to maximise turnout at general elections and address the issues behind instances of low turnout, particularly among young people; believes that the public's engagement with politics would be improved by wider viewing of proceedings in Parliament; notes that there is currently a ban on the posting of parliamentary video clips on websites described by the relevant authorities as `third party hosting websites'; believes that video footage of parliamentary proceedings should be made available to the public on video hosting websites such as YouTube; notes that online viewing is increasing in popularity, with a 2006 ICM survey finding that 43 per cent. of people in the UK are watching less television as a result of increased online viewing; and calls for parliamentary authorities to review current broadcasting arrangements so that footage of parliament can be widely viewed by the electorate using the internet.
