House of Commons Twitter feed: @HouseofCommons


The House of Commons now has its own dedicated Twitter feed, @HouseofCommons, maintained by the Public Information and Outreach team.

The feed has been live since January and already has over 8,000 followers, including Members of both Houses, political journalists, broadcasters and a wide range of interest groups and NGOs.

@HouseofCommons provides politically impartial news and information on the work of the Commons, with a particular focus on increasing the visibility of work in the Chamber and in Westminster Hall debates.
