Originally set up as a web based project to accommodate the desire of Parliaments in Central Asia to have an understanding of the workings of the United Kingdom Parliament, the site has grown into something much more, with almost 100 videos and blogs from those inside of Parliament.
With this site, we aim to offer an insider’s guide to one of the oldest parliamentary democracies in the world by speaking directly to the MPs, Peers and Staff who serve there. Here, we examine:
- the roles of parliamentary institutions
- how laws are made and scrutinised
- the role of representatives
- how Parliament works day to day
On Parliament Revealed, you can expect to see up-to-date videos on parliament and how it functions, with a plethora of content on topics ranging from elections to e-petitions, and from adjournment debates to accountability.
Our team of writers will also be publishing regular articles and blogs on new and emerging stories from Parliament to help keep you up to date with Westminster’s activities, and understand how the mother of parliaments works.
