Office Facilities For Journalists

EDM number 717 in 2009-10, proposed by Lembit Opik on 26/01/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Parliament and Press.

That this House notes the high cost of facilities paid by the broadcast media in No 4 Millbank; further notes the low cost of facilities of around 150 per person for print journalists in the Houses of Parliament per year; believes that the print media should pay their fair share for office facilities as profit-making businesses; and calls on the House authorities to charge the equivalent market rate to individuals working for privately-owned newspapers on a pro rata basis according to their circulation.

This motion has been signed by a total of 5 MPs.
