As of May 2 2022 we are migrating from Google Analytics to Matomo.

At the moment, when someone visits or we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Email addresses

We do not offer any mailing lists or other subscriptions and therefore do not maintain any email addresses for this purpose.

Who we share with

We do not routinely share personal information with other organisations but would do on request from the House of Commons if any issue arose with the legitimacy or correctness of notices, events listings or job adverts submitted to us.

Access to the information we hold

Any requests relating to personal data and our data protection practices, including subject access requests, should be sent to the editor at or via post to w4mp Editor, West View, West Stonesdale, Richmond DL11 6EA
