Upcoming changes to WhereTheyStand

WhereTheyStand is currently going a significant redevelopment to enhance the look and functionality of the site, including adding full Hansard transcripts. This is expected to go live in December 2022 and will be a major refresh which also resolves many bugs.

For more details on these improvements, please view my blog post outlining the plans. In the meantime, no feature updates to the current version of the site are planned. Accuracy remains paramount, so corrections and feedback can still be submitted using the tool in the website footer.
