Motion text

That this House acknowledges the intentions of the work of the Committee of Standards on all party parliamentary groups; asks for another debate on the proposed transitional arrangements, preferably after a meeting with the hon. Member for Worthing West and others; recognises the ending of foreign government funding; asks the Committee of Standards to consider afresh the adverse impacts that will be consequential to the coming requirements on restricting the number of officers, the ban on naming other interested Peers and MPs, and the need to have at least 20 Members remembering that every Peer and MP is held to be a member of every group; believes that many valuable groups will find it difficult to assemble eight parliamentarians at a specified time in a specific place; and respectfully suggests that reconsideration can lead to gaining more while losing less of value.
