The Parliamentary Library has started accepting comments on FlagPost on a trial basis.
As can be seen from those posts already contributed by Parliamentary Library research staff, FlagPost seeks to provide factual, descriptive and/or summary information on topics of current interest to members of the Australian Parliament. However, we also recognise that FlagPost has a large readership beyond the Australian Parliament that includes people with expertise and interest across a wide range of fields.
The purpose of the comments trial will be to see what our readers might add to the understanding of issues covered on FlagPost.
For those wishing to contribute, feedback and additional information can be added by clicking on the ‘comments’ button at the bottom of individual posts. You should note that we will moderate comments, and reserve the right not to publish comments that are inconsistent with the objectives of FlagPost (for example, comments that are factually incorrect, politically partisan, abusive etc). In order to ensure a civil environment consistent with these objectives contributors are encouraged to use their real names.
Finally, if you would like to provide general feedback, please feel free to send us an email
