Senior House staff (in common with all staff) on official duty are entitled to use the late night transport service in the event of a late night sitting. A late night transport service is provided for staff on official duty if:
the House rises between 11 pm (or if the motion for the Adjournment is moved at or after 10.30 pm) and 9 am the next morning; or
a Committee rises between 11 pm and 9 am the next morning.
If there is a major disruption to public transport, the late night transport service is provided from 10 pm irrespective of what time the House rises. The House meets the cost of journeys of 25 miles or less. Staff wishing to travel outside this radius are advised (at the time of booking) to enter into a private arrangement with the driver and pay him/her the additional cost of the journey. Where practicable, taxis are shared between a number of staff.
