Another would be via MP's who are members of http://www.apig.org.uk/ (All
Party Internet Group) which helps inform MP's on the Internet and to a
lesser extent all IT issues.

Interestingly I notice on their website the statement "If you would like
to get involved in any APIG discussion forums or have issues that you
would like the group to discuss please contact the APIG
Administrative Secretariat", maybe we should see if we can get them to
host a disscussion on free software.

The membership of APIG is:

Joint Chairman: - Derek Wyatt MP, Michael Fabricant MP
