Each year, the University of East Anglia host a week of special events to mark UK Parliament Week.
On Thursday 21st November, a round-table event was held in Thomas Paine Study Centre, open to the public. We invited a journalist, a former backbench, a former minister, a Clerk and an expert adviser to reflect on what Parliament meant to them:
- Phillip Webster (Times Online)
- Ian Gibson (Former MP for Norwich North)
- June Thoburn (Professor of Social Work, UEA)
- Rt. Hon Charles Clarke (Former Home Secretary)
- Douglas Miller (Former House of Commons Clerk)
