Opportunity To Visit The House Of Commons
That this House notes that a consequence of changing its sitting hours on Tuesdays from the afternoon to the morning will mean that each year an estimated 20,000 visitors, predominantly organised school parties, will no longer be able to visit the House; believes that the opportunity for young people to visit the Houses of Parliament is an important part of their education and of contact with the democratic process; and calls on the House authorities to consider what alternative arrangements can be made to enable school parties and others to attend Parliament on sitting days.
