TellParliament.net

This site holds online consultations currently being run on behalf of Parliamentary Select Committees and All-Party Groups. It also acts as an archive for those consultations held on the site in the past.

Please feel free to use these online forums to raise issues, respond to points made by others and ask questions regarding the inquiries. To ensure the parliamentary bodies have a wide and diverse range of views to consider, please encourage others with an interest in these topics to take part in Tell Parliament.

Through this page you can access the following forums:

Defence Committee - Educting Service ChildrenThe Defence Committee is holding an inquiry into the education of children of Service personnel. The inquiry focuses on the provision of education in Service schools overseas and the performance of the Ministry of Defence's Agency, Service Children's Education, but it will also consider the issues facing children and young people when they return to education in the UK and the schooling, and assistance with schooling, which MoD provides in the UK.

The purpose of this online forum is to obtain the views of people with direct experience of Service children's education - families, teachers, education managers, and, most importantly, young people themselves. MPs on the Committee will respond to the comments with the aim of producing a lively debate.

We hope that this will help us identify the most important issues and get ideas for solutions to any problems. We hope that you will tell us about the positive things, as well as about any problems.

When the forum is closed, a summary report and transcripts of the comments will be presented to the Committee and this, together with the written and oral evidence received, will help shape the report we make to Parliament. The Government will have to respond to the recommendations we make.

Diabetes Dialogue

Hate CrimeOne of the great successes of this kind of online consultation is that it has the ability to get at hard to reach groups. Our evaluation work of the people who took part in this consultation has highlighted one telling statistic that 78% of participants had never contacted their MP before.

We are delighted at the outcomes of this Diabetes Dialogue initiative; as it has successfully brought together people from all across the country, in one secure deliberative online space. Comments posted on the website by participants were highly constructive and one of the most pleasing developments was the sharing of experiences amongst the participants.
