Gibraltar Parliament 'closer to the people' as records of proceedings now put online

Saturday, 18 February 2012
In a bid to bring the Parliament of Gibraltar and its work closer to the electorate, full audio and written recordings of parliamentary proceedings are to be made publicly available online from today.

The Gibraltar Parliament in session (Photo: GibNews.net)In line with the policy of the Rock's new GSLP/Liberal government, it will now possible to listen to what has taken place in Parliament via the Government website at www.gibraltar.gov.gi/the-gibraltar-parliament/proceedings-of-parliament-audio as well as read a written transcript of proceedings via a new HANSARD.

The proceedings of this week will be immediately available and the website will be updated after each meeting of Parliament.

This is a very welcome move in the name of transparency, but how long before sessions are streamed live online?
