Co-inciding with the publication of high profile autobiographies and the mayoral election in London, much press and public attention has centred around historic splits in the political parties; personalities in public life and future leadership issues.
This of course tends to obscure the real function of Parliament and the achievements of Government. Debates still arise over the NHS, education, social services, inland security and, in today’s precarious international financial environment, housing, inflation and debt. No matter how much interest is generated by personalities, government is about commitment and achievement and it is this, the myriad aspects of the government of the nation, that are covered by the features in the Parliamentary Yearbook Online.
This website has been designed to make it easier to access these features as well as the invaluable contributions from our partners in the public and private sectors. My appreciation goes out to everyone who has been involved in its production.
