P4tF addresses the use of the internet by Parliament to provide information to the public, to promote legislative scrutiny and to enhance representation, and seeks to map:
1. How technology has been used in these areas to date;
2. Which technologies or processes may emerge in these areas over the next five years;
3. How Parliament can plan strategically towards future ICT investment and provision.
To address these questions the Hansard Society formed an incubator group of academics, technologists and practitioners; this report showcases those ideas. The report outlines some recommendations about how Parliament can develop and enhance its use of online forms of engagement.
P4tF was funded by the UK Parliament's Group on Information for the Public.
