Outsourcing Of Parliament's Search And Screening Functions

EDM number 87 in 2014-15, proposed by John McDonnell on 12/06/2014.
Categorised under the topic of Parliament.

That this House values the dedication of House of Commons security staff who are employed by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS); recognises their professionalism and commitment every day to ensure that all those within Parliament are safe; is concerned by plans to outsource search and screening functions for the three main entrances of Parliament, which will affect around 150 staff, when the current contract expires in 2015; and urges the Clerk of the House and the Clerk of the Parliaments to reconsider their proposals and ensure all security functions continue to be carried out by employees of the MPS or by staff directly employed by Parliament.

This motion has been signed by a total of 31 MPs.
