Comparative Table of Parliamentary TA Institutions

UNITED KINGDOM - THE PARLIAMENTARY OFFICE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY 

The way ahead

POST is unlikely to see any expansion in its permanent staff numbers in the near future but its intake of parliamentary fellows has been increasing as new sponsors come forward with collaboration suggestions.


POST is currently putting considerable emphasis on targeting its output to the interests of specific groups of Members of Parliament by using geographical information on the characteristics of their constituencies. Members of the House of Lords do not have constituencies but POST is using other means to identify where they have geographical interests. A good example is the recent POST publication on Anaerobic Digestion. A database is available giving the location of the 60+ digestion facilities open or planned in the UK. By matching these to MembersĀ“ constituencies, POST has been able particularly to target the publication to their interests.
