House of Commons Members’ Fund

Volume 679: debated on Monday 7 September 2020

Motion made, and Question proposed,


(1) Anne Main be removed as a Trustee of the House of Commons Members’ Fund and Stuart Andrew and Sir Alan Campbell be appointed as Trustees in pursuance of section 2 of the House of Commons Members’ Fund Act 2016; and

(2) the sum to be deducted from the salaries of Members of the House of Commons in pursuance of section 4(1) and (2) of that Act shall continue to be £2 per month.—(Stuart Andrew.)

May I start by paying tribute to Anne Main, the former Member for St Albans, who was part of the Members’ Fund? I thank the hon. Member for Pudsey (Stuart Andrew) and my right hon. Friend the Member for Tynemouth (Sir Alan Campbell) for agreeing to serve. I am sure that they will both do a very good job.

I will be very brief. I cannot disagree with anything that was just said; I thoroughly endorse that position.

I am grateful to the right hon. Member for Walsall South (Valerie Vaz) for her kind comments, and I would like to add my thanks and those of the Government to former Member Anne Main.

Question put and agreed to.
