Parliament Week

Parliament Week is an exciting new national initiative that aims to build greater awareness, understanding of and engagement with parliamentary democracy in the UK.

The inaugural Parliament Week will take place between 31 October and 6 November 2011 with a programme of activities across the UK that explore how and why the House of Commons and the House of Lords matter to everyone.
