The Study Tour, which was part of the project of Supporting Pakistan Parliament supported by the British High Commission Islamabad, was organised in UK by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, UK Branch while PILDAT, the project implementer in Pakistan, coordinated from Pakistan. The study tour was an exercise and an opportunity for Pakistani MPs to learn and understand the working of British Parliament and British MPs. The 5-day intense orientation programme facilitated Pakistani MPs to understand the working of British Parliament and its committees, various parliamentary bodies, the working of treasury and opposition MPs, role of MPs inside and outside Parliament and their interaction with and access within their constituency. PILDAT would especially like to thank the cooperation of the CPA-UK Branch in facilitating and organising the Study Tour. We are in particularly grateful to the management and team of CPA UK Branch. Our special thanks and gratitude is due for Ms. Elspeth Macdonald, Assistant Secretary, CPA UK Branch, for her superb organisation, coordination and excellent management of every step of the entire Study Tour.
