With the launch of ParliNet, the new parliamentary intranet, we will be updating links from w4mp to intranet pages to reflect the improved structure of the new site.
ParliNet contains everything you need to stay connected to the parliamentary community. Use it to find information like catering menus, events, contact numbers, and the latest news, and we will be reviewing the contents of w4mp to ensure that it complements what you can find there.
Please note that the old intranet is not being updated and will be switched off on 25 October. Just like us, you should update your favourites and bookmarks to ones on parlinet.parliament.uk before then.
The earlier issue with Internet access in Parliament has now been resolved. Please reboot your machine. If you are still having difficulties after rebooting your machine, please contact PDS.
