House of Commons Commission

Volume 682: debated on Thursday 15 October 2020

The hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire, representing the House of Commons Commission, was asked—

Covid-19: Parliamentary Estate

How many and what proportion of people with permanent passes to the Parliamentary estate have tested positive for covid-19. (907539)

The House of Commons Commission does not hold data on the proportion of people with permanent passes to the Parliamentary estate who have tested positive for covid-19. Where data is recorded in relation to the House of Commons, a total of 11 positive test results have been recorded for the period March to October 2020.

Getting the flu jab is never more important than this year. What proportion of passholders does the hon. Gentleman think will be taking the flu jab this year?

My hope is that as many Members as possible will take the opportunity to have the flu jab this year. The House of Commons does not collate any particular information on that, but I think all of us in the House would encourage all our constituents and all Members of Parliament to do what they can to secure the flu jab to keep everybody safe.
