Hansard remixed for the net generation (07 Jun 2004)
The new site aims to bring more information to voters who may not even know the name of their MP, or their constituency, "let alone what their MP does or says in their name".
It does this by "scraping" the content of the official Hansard website shortly after it comes online every weekday morning at 8am, allowing short passages to be accessed almost instantly, and interlinking those speeches and questions to be tallied against the records of individual MPs. Users can also annotate each speech, question or answer with their comments.
