Members: Allowances

Volume 491: debated on Wednesday 22 April 2009

To ask the Leader of the House if she will make it her policy to provide that a copy of each (a) parliamentary report and (b) other material funded from the Communications Allowance produced by hon. Members be placed in the Library. (268664)

No. Communications expenditure can be used to fund a wide range of material, including websites, direct mail letters and advertisements of Members’ advice surgery dates in local papers, which it would be impractical to deposit in the Library and it is not clear that such a move would serve any useful purpose.
