I currently work in constituency office but I am relocating to a position in Westminster (starting on 5th Feb) and I am looking for a place to live.
I have used spare room etc without much luck so I thought I would give this a try. My budget is up to £700 pcm inc bills.
About me: 29 years old, clean, tidy, good cook, like to travel and I love gin.
POST has published a list, setting out the topic areas identified of possible parliamentary interest under the 9 different category headings (Agriculture, Fisheries, Food and Forestry, Crime, Defence, Education and Skills, Energy, Environment, Health, ICT and Robotics and Transport and Infrastructure).
Where relevant this list will inform the deliberations of the POST Board on POST’s future work programme until it is updated or replaced by future horizon scanning activities. This list of issues was initially identified from academic papers and grey literature as having an impact on public policy, and then peer reviewed to focus on those topic areas of most interest, and then narrowed to those considered to be the highest priority through a workshop with parliamentary staff.
