Extending Committee outreach online

The panel were asked what plans the Assembly has to live stream committee meetings online. The DUP’s Mervyn Storey noted that the current infrastructure existed to live stream Plenary sessions. The discussion went on to focus on the issue of adequate committee space within Parliament Buildings with Sean Neeson from the Alliance Party pointing out that an accommodation audit was ongoing. The UUP’s Reverent Robert Coulter, a member of the Assembly Commission, noted further that as well as the website, Commission members were looking at several ways to better engage with the public.

Are you aware that all Plenary sessions are currently streamed live on the Assembly website? If Committee meetings were available to live stream do you think this is something you would regularly access?
