That this House believes that the public's engagement with politics would be improved by wider viewing of proceedings in Parliament; congratulates the BBC on the launch of its excellent Democracy Live website, which enables members of the public to search for video clips of proceedings from the Houses of Parliament; welcomes recent changes to the licensing conditions for distributing video recordings of Parliamentary proceedings, which now allow hon. Members to upload such video clips to external searchable websites such as YouTube; notes that the Houses of Parliament are still the only legislative body in the UK which does not allow the electorate to share video footage of its proceedings on their own websites; further welcomes the Leader of the House's promise to look into this matter; and calls for the Parliamentary authorities to review the licensing conditions to allow members of the public to share video clips of Parliamentary proceedings on their own websites.

This motion has been signed by a total of 48 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
