House Committee

Volume 755: debated on Wednesday 30 July 2014

Motion to Agree

Moved by

My Lords, the Refreshment Committee reviewed the current banqueting rules in May this year. It made recommendations to the House Committee, which are set out in the report before the House today. The purpose of the revisions is to ensure that the rules concerning banqueting are clear and to better protect Members financially when they sponsor events for third parties. If agreed today, the new rules will take effect from 1 January 2015.

Motion agreed.
