Parliamentary Reporting Department

The Parliamentary Reporting Department produces edited verbatim reports (Handelingen, or proceedings) of the plenary sittings of the House of Representatives and the Senate, committee debates on draft legislation or policy documents, meetings of committees of the Senate, round-table talks, and hearings of investigation committees and committees of inquiry (open and closed).

It also generates concise web reports on matters discussed in the plenary sittings of the House of Representatives. On request and under certain conditions, the Parliamentary Reporting Office provides editing and translation services to other departments. Moreover, it makes data available for the video application that enables the public to review plenary debates in the House.
