To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission if he will make a statement on the availability of breastfeeding facilities for (a) hon. Members and (b) members of the public in the House. (83762)

Breastfeeding facilities are available for hon. Members in the Family Room off the Lower Waiting Hall and, if greater privacy is needed, in first aid rooms in various parts of the Estate. For members of the public there is a baby care room just off the Upper Committee Corridor, and there are baby changing facilities off the Lower Waiting Hall and off the Upper Committee Corridor. Details of these facilities for visitors are set out in a leaflet issued by the Serjeant at Arms. These facilities are also open to hon. Members and staff.
