The House of Commons Learning and Development team brochure,  Learning News and Activities (LNA), is now available. Alongside information about our latest work the brochure includes a calendar of all the learning events scheduled for staff of the House of Commons and for Members’ staff. This includes some courses specifically for Members’ staff around various casework issues such as Immigration Law and Welfare Benefits.
