ABOUT THE PARLIAMENTARY REVIEW
Combining political commentary from leading journalists, with sector specific insight from Secretaries of State, Ministers and MPs, The Parliamentary Review is an indispensable guide to industry best practice, which demonstrates how sector leaders have responded to challenges in the political and economic environment.
The Review has several editions, each focusing on an individual policy area with the strategic aim of raising standards by highlighting best practice.
The Parliamentary Review is sent to over 500,000 leading business executives, policy makers and other relevant individuals. In recent years, it has featured forewords by Theresa May, David Cameron, Caroline Lucas, Lucy Powell and many other political figures. The Review's release is marked by an annual gala in the Palace of Westminster.
