To ask the Lord President of the Council what forms of access to the precincts are given to employees of Parliamentary Communications Ltd. for the purposes of the operation of "The House Magazine"; if any advance information is given to the magazine by staff of the House; and if he will make a statement.
Three representatives of "The House Magazine" have access to the Press Gallery. In addition, two research assistants have registered an interest in connection with that magazine, as required by the
Resolution of the House of 17 December 1985. The only advance information provided to the magazine, m common with that provided generally to the Press Gallery, is on the future activities of Select and Standing Committees.
To ask the Lord President of the Council when "The House Magazine" was granted permission by the House of Commons (Services) Committee to use the portcullis associated with the House as its insignia.
I am advised that a record of the information requested cannot be traced.
