In-House Services and Participation are the teams anticipated to be the most impacted in financial terms. Current estimated costs from these two teams are as follows:</p><p><strong>In-House Services</strong><br>An estimated £173k in lost banqueting sales (gross), resulting in £102k off the catering services bottom-line. This includes staff recall costs.</p><p><strong>Participation</strong><br>Estimated lost revenue of up to £50k (£44k lost ticket sales and up to £6k if the Jubilee shop remains closed or there are fewer visitors) due to the expectation that the Palace of Westminster would be closed on Saturday 12 October to prepare for State Opening.</p><p>Total costs to the taxpayer will include other costs that fall outside of the House of Commons Service, including costs for the House of Lords and IPSA (in relation to costs for MPs returning to Westminster).</p>

However, recognising the importance of this matter, the shadow Sponsor Board has agreed a strategic approach, which commits the programme to deliver a building which supports Parliament’s core function as a working legislature using high-quality design and technology, as well as encouraging wider participation in the work of Parliament, including through improved digital access. This strategic approach has also been endorsed by the Commissions of both Houses.</p> more like this

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. They have asked the House Administration to carry out further work to examine the practical steps that can be taken in response to it.</p><p>Terms and conditions of service for Members’ staff fall within the remit of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority.</p>
