MP STAFF REDUNDANCY PAYMENTS

EDM (Early Day Motion) 17: tabled on 21 June 2017

Tabled in the 2017-19 session.

This motion has been signed by 44 Members. It has not yet had any amendments submitted.

Motion text

That this House acknowledges the lack of financial support for hon. Members' staff members who have found themselves unemployed due to their hon. Member not being returned at the 2017 general election; notes that a number of hon. Members, first elected at the 2015 general election, did not retain their seats meaning that many of their staff will have worked less than two years, therefore will receive inadequate redundancy support from the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA); further notes the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 was created to provide a five-year period between general elections, therefore providing stability and reassurance for hon. Members' staff that they would have employment for five years; and believes that IPSA must look at the financial assistance that is being provided to staff and ensure that they are properly supported no matter the parliamentary term length.
