Here you will find a collection of guides to good practice that  will offer you advice in carrying out the main activities expected of you in your job. They are constantly being revised and updated so if you do print a guide out please remember to check back from time to time.

We also include links to resources that will be of use to staff. Some of these are on the Parliamentary Intranet and can only be accessed if you have an appropriate login.

W4MP Archive

W4MP has been in operation since 2000 and we have published hundred of guides in that time.

Our light-hearted alt.guides are also available for your delectation and delight
