Read the Parallel Parliament User Guide

Parallel Parliament was founded in 2019, with the goal of providing a user-friendly platform that compiles information from official sources of the UK political landscape in one place.

With the abundance of information scattered across different websites and the difficulty of searching them, it can be a challenge to obtain a complete view of an MP's or Department's activities or to find all relevant parliamentary and government publications on a specific topic.

Parallel Parliament eliminates this inconvenience by presenting all the available information in a single, easily searchable resource.

It is widely utilized by MPs, trade organizations, charities, and local authorities to stay informed about the actions of the UK Government and Parliament.
