Motion text

That this House is most concerned that the cumulative effects of some of the recommendations of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority will lead to a narrowing of the recruitment base from which hon. Members are drawn; furthermore has anxieties that these proposals will deter excellent candidates from less affluent backgrounds, as well as female candidates and those from constituencies at a considerable distance from London; and calls on the Authority to reconsider proposals that could lead to Parliament becoming once again a metropolitan, rich persons' club which excludes men and women from a diverse range of backgrounds.
