free introduction to Parliament 4th July @ 6pm

Hi Jean-Francois,

I work at UK Parliament, and have been a member of the GPN email list for a few years now. I noticed that you have  an event at the House of Lords on the 10th July. 

We are hosting a free introduction to Parliament session a week before which might be helpful for your members if they wanted to expand their knowledge.

There’s a bit more information on the Eventbrite page. But it would be massively apprecaied if you could circulate this to anyone who might be interested. (unfortunately there are no canapes – but it will be great!)

All the best
