Last November 2015 the Mile End Institute at Queen Mary University of London hosted a Perspectives on Parliament event about the real life of MPs’ staff.
Janet Walker, Chief of Staff to Tom Tugendhat MP, gave a candid insight into what it is really like ‘in the thick of it’, discussing the trials and tribulations faced by MPs staff and the vital skills they need to succeed.
Perspectives on Parliament events give an insight into Parliament’s people, processes, offices, history and culture. They will also give an insight into how Parliament scrutinises specific policy areas. These events are held at universities and higher education institutions across the UK.
