To ask the Lord Privy Seal if he will bring forward proposals to allow note-taking in the Strangers Gallery by members of the public; and if he will make a statement.

No. Visitors attend the Strangers' Gallery in order to listen and observe proceedings of the House. In accordance with the resolution of the Services Committee, 21 January 1981, I do not believe that it would be appropriate to allow note-taking when records of our proceedings are widely available, both in Hansard and in the national press.
