Weekly Information Bulletin: 6th February 2010


Weekly Information Bulletin Review

The Information Office is currently reviewing all of its activities and publications. The Weekly Information Bulletin is also being reviewed. It would be extremely helpful if users of the bulletin could get in touch with the information office to indicate what parts of the Bulletin they find important, which parts they never use, and whether there are aspects of Parliamentary business that the Bulletin does not cover, that users would value.

It would also be useful if you could indicate whether a weekly hardcopy document would be more useful than an electronic service that was updated on a more regular basis.
