Mid Norfolk MP George Freeman in the running for a website award

Mid Norfolk MP George Freeman has, for the second year running, been nominated for the BCS, Chartered Institute for IT, MP Web Awards.

IT is now integral to parliamentary communication and public engagement, with the BCS awarding the best MP websites in four categories: accessibility, social media, usability, and engagement. There will also be an overall winner.

To select the finalists, BCS looked at the websites of every MP looking for sites which encourage communication between MPs and constituents, that are engaging and easy to navigate, and use social media.

Last year Mr Freeman was the successful finalist for the overall winner award and is pleased to be nominated again.

The presentations will be made on Wednesday and he said: 'It is wonderful to be nominated again.

'MPs' websites have become more and more important in the past 10 years and are now a crucial means for communication. For busy people, checking the website can be the easiest way to find out what I've been doing for Mid Norfolk and how I can help them. It's all about convenience, be it to arrange a meeting with me or even just to find web links to other useful sites via our 'links' page.

'I'm pleased that the BCS have recognised the website, but most importantly hope that constituents are finding it useful too.'
