I was in London again on Friday for the Voluntary Arts England Parliamentary Processes Explained course at Portcullis House. This training event for voluntary arts umbrella bodies was delivered by the Parliamentary Outreach team and covered the ways in which Parliament and Government work and how groups can best seek to influence Parliament. We looked in detail at topics including how legislation is developed and amended, the use of questions to Ministers, Parliamentary debates, Select Committees, the Backbench Business Committee, Early Day Motions and All Party Parliamentary Groups. It was a fascinating event with lots of extremely practical tips and advice – and it great to be running this training right at the heart of Parliament.
