Parliament Pass-Holders Mystery

Dizzy raises a valid point that despite the legislative process being in full swing, the offices allocated and the newbies all sworn in and jetted off for the summer, there is still no Register of Members’ Interests. How hard can it be to get them to fill out a form? Actually…

Last week Guido was trying to get hold of an updated list of Parliamentary assistants, researchers and other assorted pass-holders. He put in a call, and after going through four different people who sounded like they were scratching their heads, he was told such a list wouldn’t be compiled until the end of August. Why? The police and pass office have background checked all pass-holders and will have their own list. Why can’t this be published?

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
