The Privy Council website has been re-launched, with a new focus on news about the Government’s modernisation agenda.There’s background on modernisation of the Commons in the form of a memorandum by Leader of the House Robin Cook on his proposals and the work of the Select Committee to date.

There’s also information about the Lords modernisation – responses to the Government’s White Paper; and a statement from Cook on the establishment of a Joint Committee.

There’s also a section on the progress of e-democracy, as he also has a role as chair of the Cabinet Committee on E-democracy.
