Committees within the UK Parliament consider policy issues, scrutinise government work, expenditure, and examine proposals for primary and secondary legislation.
The UK Parliament’s Covid-19 Committee say that:
“The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated our rapidly increasing reliance on digital technology. This inquiry will look at the long-term impact this may have on our social and economic wellbeing and, in particular, on four key drivers of wellbeing: physical health, mental health, social interaction and quality of working life.”
They have now published the first part of their inquiry report: “Living Online – the long term impact on wellbeing”.
