Microsoft Word ECRG Evaluation of the Houses of the Oireachtas Pilot e-Consultation for the Proposed Broadcasting Bill

The consulters, comprising of members of the Joint Committee of Communications, Marine and Natural Resources and the Office of the Houses of the Oireachtas e-Consultation Working Group, viewed the e-Consultation pilot as a significant departure from previous practice as it involved a dedicated website which allowed for the posting of submissions in a structured manner as well as a discussion forum and it constituted an attempt to communicate directly with the public on legislation and not just target traditional 'stakeholders'. The eConsulation had two key objectives: - broadening participation in consultation by engaging the public, along with stakeholders and; - Establishing the readiness of the Oireachtas and the public for the use of e-technology. The E-Consultation Research Group (ECRG): G. Honor Fagan, Paul McCusker, Michael Murray, D. R. Newman and David O'Donnell.
