Rupert Hay-Campbell blogs about Parliament's technology strategy and how it supports our digital strategy.
Dia Nag talks about our discovery work on ‘exploring the user needs for the development of the intranet’. We wanted to validate existing assumptions and gather requirements for the intranet through qualitative and quantitative research.

Editor-in-Chief Carrie Barclay talks about her recent project taking the first ever official portraits of MPs and what this means for the future of Parliamentary images.
Laurence Grinyer talks about the common misconception that design is only about aesthetics.

The Data and Search team are working to improve the search function on parliament.uk. It’s the start of more work we’ll be doing on search in the future.
