Motion text

That this House notes with continuing concern the announcement made on 9th October that `Members should have priority access to services throughout the Commons part of the Parliamentary Estate'; further notes that such an approach is expedient in certain areas at certain times, such as during a division, but not everywhere all the time; believes that this announcement persists in creating a rigid two-tier system which is counter to an enlightened image of Parliament; further believes there is merit in a general presumption of equality on the Parliamentary Estate; and urges the Accommodation Committee to reconsider.
