Parliament is a serious business: Here’s why it matters to your business and what you should know…

ITT Hub News has quickly established itself as the place to go for all our industries’ news and comment. 

We are committed to maintaining our service as the leading one-stop-shop for the wide variety of subjects that are of professional interest to you. 

As part of that commitment, I am delighted to announce that we have now introduced a monthly political column which monitors the key political developments and announcements that affect us all in the industry.

We can all be forgiven for thinking that the only politics going on is the knockabout stuff we see from the House on the TV which is usually only of interest to the ‘Westminster Village’.

Nothing could be further from the truth…

Parliament is a non-stop working machine, with Parliamentary Questions, Ministerial Statements, Standing Committees, Select Committees and Legislation all taking place which could have a direct effect on your business. 

Not only is it vital that you are aware of these developments, very often, if you are alerted early enough, you can actually join the debate and have a direct influence on proposed legislation, policy direction and even Government announcements. 

Monitoring Parliament is a very specialist skill however which is why so many leading companies pay such heavy fees to Parliamentary monitoring companies.  I am very pleased to tell you, that ITT.Hub News will be bringing you this for free.

ITT Hub News has secured the services of Pauline Gaunt OBE who is a leading specialist in this field. 

Pauline was not only the Parliamentary Clerk at the Department of Transport for many years with responsibility for all the Department’s Parliamentary Business, she was also Bill Manager for a major Transport Bill and was awarded with an OBE for successfully managing it through Parliament. 

Following her career in the Civil Service, Pauline worked for both a leading lobby company and the Confederation of Passenger Transport heading its parliamentary engagement.

The column will appear on the News Hub every month. Read the first one here

If you would like either Pauline or one of our other parliamentary experts to expand upon or explain something mentioned in the column, please get in touch

Similarly, if you would like to explore the idea of a monitoring service tailored specifically for your company (which could be on a core regular basis) please, let us know.

I hope you enjoy the column and, as always, would love to receive any comments that you may have.

You will receive our regular news digest – typically weekly. We are serious about GDPR and we promise to take care of your data and will never sell it or pass it on.
