You don't have to travel all the way to Westminster to get an insider's view of the workings of Parliament today.

The Parliamentary Outreach team is coming to Dorchester to put on a free seminar at the Town Hall from 7-9pm this evening.

It'll include speeches from Emily Baldock from the House of Lords and Director of Public Information at the House of Commons, Lee Bridges.

Attendees will discover how local issues such as renewable energy can be taken to Parliament, and how engaging with Parliament can ensure that a diverse range of voices is heard.

Guests will learn how to submit their views on Bills currently passing through the House of Commons, such as the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill, which will impact employment, regulation of businesses and finance.

The seminar will also illustrate the different roles of the Commons and the Lords, explain how a bill becomes an Act and describe how to engage with current legislation going through Parliament, equipping attendees with the ability to contribute to parliamentary processes.

Part of a series of events taking place around the country, the Public Bill Seminar is free to attend and open to all.
Lee Bridges, Director of Public Information, said: "We are very excited to be bringing our Public Bill Seminar to the historic market town of Dorchester. With such a range of expert speakers, this event should prove to be informative and fascinating both for the people of Dorset and for the Outreach team."
