Volume 447: debated on Wednesday 14 June 2006

To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission how many tours of the Palace each hon. Member has requested in the last 12 months. (76009)

Between June 2005 and May 2006 inclusive, 7,374 tours ran for 620 Members of the House of Commons. By mixing smaller groups together (up to each tour slot’s maximum capacity of 20), this accommodated 7,911 Member groups. The highest number of tour slots supplied to an individual Member was 89. It is not the practice to publish details of the use made by individual Members of such facilities.
