National Audit Office, Office of National Statistics and Parliament are holding a joint hack event to look at how they use each others information; what their users want to do with their data and information; and how to improve what they do online.
So here is a helpful list of APIs and data-sources for the event using data.parliament.
http://data.parliament.uk – main site
- http://api.data.parliament.uk/help – Atom feed help
- http://explore.data.parliament.uk – Search and API site
- http://blog.data.parliament.uk – blog on data.parliament
- https://github.com/UKParliData – Examples on Github using the data
Remember even if you wish to use a dataset that is not yet available live, you can use the API help in http://explore.data.parliament.uk get an idea of what can be possible if the data was available.
