Resource of the Week: UK Parliament Website


UK Parliament Website

Official website for UK Parliament with information on how parliament works, with latest news and details of topics currently under debate. A great starting point for discovering how the British electoral system works.

For example, the House of Lords pages looks at the role and work of the House of Lords.

This website is just one of the useful websites on politics that you will find  in this handout: Finding Information on Politics
