Parliament & Internet is an annual conference to discuss Internet policy and inform policymakers by bringing together Government, Parliamentarians, officials, business and  civil society. It is a platform where thought leaders debate important technology issues that shape legislative policy in an open forum.

The stimulus for Parliament & Internet came from UK members of Parliament  with a keen interest in the Internet who visited Washington DC between 2003 and 2006 and spoke at the US Congressional Internet Caucus. It was felt that a similar regular open dialogue was needed in the UK. The first Parliament & Internet conference was held in the Houses of Parliament in October 2006 and has become a key event each year since for those interested in discussing Internet policy.

 

Parliament & Internet Conference – 23 March 2022

ISPA was delighted to hold the 15th Parliament & Internet conference in the Attlee Suite of Portcullis House on 23rd March 2022. The event was at full capacity and featured two excellent panel discussions on ‘Is gigabit capable broadband on track to level up the UK?’ chaired by Selaine Saxby MP and ‘Where next for ‘UK Internet?' chaired by Ben Lake MP.

An array of panellists offered their expertise on these matters including Catherine Colloms (Director Corporate Affairs and Brand at Openreach), Katie O’Donovan (Director of Government Affairs and Public Policy at Google) and Amy Jordan (Principle Public Policy, Ofcom). Additionally, there were two great keynotes from Helen Milner OBE, Group Chief Executive at the Good Things Foundation and Stephen Bonner, Executive Director at the Information Commissioner’s Office.
