Ministers Under the Influence is a project that came out of the #HackBrexit Hackathon which took place during one weekend, July 23-24 in 2016. The project was further developed during the Hack Brexit accelerator programme which ran September - December 2016. See the site for the full project here.
The aim of Ministers Under the Influence is to unearth public-but-obscure information about who ministers are meeting. By making this data more accessible we can hope to better hold our government to account. We hope this will feed into a wider project about tracking who is influencing our elected politicians.
Whilst the 3 month accelerator programme which ran September - December 2016 is now over, we would still welcome contributions for the project. Please join us on slack to begin contributing here. and on the github repository here.
