ITC give evidence to House of Commons Procedure Committee
ITC have a depth of knowledge in this area and a historical role in the use of e-petitions systems by parliaments (for example by providing systems for the Scottish Parliament and the German Bundestag). So we submitted a written response to the enquiry: ITC’s Submission to the House of Commons Procedure Committee.
The Procedure Committee then invited ITC to give evidence as part of a panel. To this end Kathy Buckner and Ella Taylor-Smith visited the House of Commons in January 2008, to give evidence to the Committee. The transcript of this meeting is available here.
