Notes from the House is an independent digital newsletter that tracks and monitors Parliament in its role of holding government to account and passing legislation to improve people’s lives. It aims to bring you the news from Parliament that you don’t get elsewhere.

We are committed to accurate and ethical journalism that empowers readers by providing them with the information to which they are constitutionally entitled. We strive to adhere to the press code and abide by decisions of the press ombudsman. We are independent and do not represent any political party.

We want to hear from you. Your comments are welcome and your contributions and opinion pieces will be considered for publication. Any errors are regretted and we ask you to report them so that they can be corrected. No hate speech, racism, bigotry or other contraventions of the Bill of Rights will be tolerated.

We thank the Claude Leon Foundation for its support.
