Drag Parliament into the 21st century Caroline Lucas

Yes, yes, yes and yes to these proposals. Great work by Green MP Caroline Lucas on parliamentary reform. Drag that place into the 21st century and make it more accessible, practical, democratic, economic and effective!

...Among the report's proposals are; the introduction of electronic voting, a systematic overhaul of Parliamentary language, measures to prevent the "talking out" of Private Members' Bills, greater use by the Speaker on limits on backbench speaking time and an end to late night sittings...
