Parliament commenced a new waste contract in November 2016 and the specification for the services included a written requirement for a continual improvement approach to collaborative waste recycling improvement. It is the contractual duty of the waste service provider to give advance notice of changes in best practice and waste recycling technology and to incorporate these into their service provision in the most expedient and effective way possible.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Members’ staff are regularly consulted on service issues by House authorities. These consultations include regular meetings between House staff and MPs’ staff representative bodies, and invitations to focus groups to feed into service design. A sample of Members’ staff have also recently been surveyed on how effective the services provided by the House are for them. There is also an annual meeting between House staff and MPs’ staff bodies (specifically Members and Peers Staff Association and Unite) at which service issues can be raised.</p><p>More recently, the House of Commons Commission has discussed the Gemma White review, and it welcomed the broad thrust of the recommendations made, which included better HR services for Members’ staff and how the sense of isolation that they feel can be addressed.
