MPs, Blackberries and prime-time TV

A couple of interesting ideas in the proposals from Jack Straw‘s Select Committee on Modernisation of the House of Commons, published today. They reckon they can ‘revitalise’ the Commons by, among other measures, having ‘a new weekly 90 minute debate in prime time on a big issue of the day’, and allowing MPs to ‘use handheld devices in the Chamber to keep up to date with e-mails, provided that it causes no disturbance.’ More info in the press release.
