Open public sector data and information

Publish the Hansard in a standard, open, parsable, format.

A big problem for sites like theyworkforyou is the massive amount of work required to run them because the Hansard does not follow standard formats. If it was open and parsable, it would allow for much more open government and more accountability on what is said in the House.
