iPad at Work: Helping an MP Deliver a Speech in Britain’s Parliament

Share This:


Labour MP (Member for Parliament) Kerry McCarthy is thought to be the first person ever to deliver a speech in the House of Commons using an iPad instead of printed notes.

McCarthy – the MP for Bristol East – read her iPad-assisted speech during a budget debate last week. She was not planning to use the iPad, but since she was called to speak late in the debate she had been making numerous edits to her speech during the proceedings and the iPad became the best choice, because it had all of her latest changes.
