Cattell: Project to create an open API for the British Parliament: #ParliamentAPI

James Cattell and a group of colleagues are developing an open API (application programming interface) for the British Parliament.

James’s Twitter list of people working on the project is at https://twitter.com/jaCattell/parliamentapi/members

A discussion board for the project is at feedback.public-scrutiny-office.org; it was set up by Iain Collins.

The Twitter hashtag for the project is #ParliamentAPI

A meeting about the project was held 12 February 2014 at the Houses of Parliament.
