Office 365 briefing June 5, Westminster


Prior to the Office 365 migration, Parliamentary ICT would like to invite Members and their staff to attend an Office 365 briefing on Thursday 5 June, 12 noon to 2pm, in the Jubilee Room off Westminster Hall.

PICT will demonstrate the different tools available through Office 365 and their associated benefits, for example through gaining easier access to documents when on the move. PICT specialists will also be on hand to give one-to-one advice and support to Members and their staff about using Office 365 on tablets, smartphones, laptops, PCs and Macs.

Following this briefing, Office 365 briefing sessions will be offered by the PICT team. The PICT team will be providing further details regarding these sessions over the next few weeks.

State Opening of Parliament tomorrow


The State Opening of Parliament formally marks the beginning of the parliamentary year, and will this year take place on Wednesday the 4th of June. The event includes the Queen’s procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster, and her speech delivered from the throne in the House of Lords. This speech, though read by the Queen, is written by the Government, and outlines plans for proposed legislation to be discussed during the new parliamentary session.
