From computer to the Commons

The government is setting up a website where you can submit an idea that you want MPs to debate and if you get 100,000 signatures then it may well be taken to the floor of the House of Commons.

The leader of the House of Commons, Sir George Young, and Professor Stephen Coleman of Leeds University debate whether the move will bring the Commons closer to the people.
