Motion text

That this House believes that Members of both Houses of Parliament should be domiciled and ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom; notes that the Government is to bring forward a draft House of Lords Bill which will include provisions to exclude peers who are non-domiciled from sitting in that Chamber; nevertheless believes that this timetable is too leisurely; notes that it deals only with the House of Lords; takes the view that the Constitutional Reform and Governance Bill which has already had its second reading in the House of Commons provides a better vehicle for making an early change to the law in this respect; and calls on the Government to table its own amendments which would prevent non-domiciled persons from serving in Parliament and require existing Members of both Houses to certify that they have been resident in the UK for tax purposes in each year since 2000.
