Proposed Price Increases In The House Of Commons

EDM number 601 in 2010-12, proposed by Keith Vaz on 22/07/2010.
Categorised under the topics of House of Commons and Service industries.

That this House is deeply concerned about the proposed price increases by up to 50 per cent. for banqueting, room hire and refreshment services in the House of Commons; firmly believes that such increases will prove seriously prohibitive to community organisations, charities and other groups who use such services, in particular room hire to raise awareness of numerous good causes; notes that any proposed increases will adversely impact the lower paid staff of the House; predicts that these proposals will inevitably lead to a loss of revenue in addition to a reduction in staff numbers and quality of service; and calls on the House of Commons Commission to reconsider its plans to increase prices within the House by such an astronomical level.

This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
