Lord Evans of Weardale – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Cabinet Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Evans of Weardale on 2016-06-27.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of whether concerns of MPs about their personal security have adversely affected their confidence in carrying out the full range of their parliamentary duties.

Lord Bridges of Headley

It is integral to the functioning of our democracy that MPs, Peers, and Ministers are able to carry out the duties without fear for their safety, or that of their staff. The personal security of MP’s is a matter for the House Authorities.
