Comparative Table of Parliamentary TA Institutions
UNITED KINGDOM - THE PARLIAMENTARY OFFICE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
The primary target for POST´s activities is individual members of
either of the two Houses of the UK Parliament. Parliamentary committees
of either House (sometimes, joint committees) are another important
target. POST also engages extensively with government departments and
the wider scientific and technological communities within the UK and
overseas, while strictly maintaining its parliamentary independence.
Part of its role is to demonstrate to these interests that the UK
Parliament possesses the analytical capacity that is POST.
All POST publications are also made available to the public at
large and are used extensively in higher and further education
