We were very pleased to welcome eight senior officials from the Rajya Sabha (Upper House) of the Parliament of India recently. The group was with us for two weeks, firstly joining our international Parliamentary Administration workshop and then attending a week’s tailor-made programme. A highlight of the programme were the visits to the House of Commons and House of Lords to meet MPs and parliamentary officials and to the Office of the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman. Our photo shows the group with the Ombudsman, Rob Behrens, and staff. The participants were very impressed with the lead tutors and visiting speakers and all worked on action plans for implementing changes on their return to the Rajya Sabha.
