One way of entry to Parliament would be through the Parliamentary Select
Committee for Science and Technology, who has the IT brief.

Background information on the Committee, its members, and contact
details, can be found at:



Gibson, Dr Ian (Chairman)
Dhanda, Mr Parmjit
Harris, Mr Tom
Heath, Mr David
Hoban, Mr Mark
Iddon, Dr Brian
McWalter, Mr Tony
Murrison, Dr Andrew
Smith, Geraldine
Spink, Bob
Turner, Dr Desmond

Perhaps a meeting with some of them, and a then an open meeting at HOC
to brief interested MPs about the work of AFFS, GNU/Linux etc.
