||<p>The current strategy for the House of Commons Service, which covers the period
2013 to 2017, was endorsed by the Commission in January 2013. It is published on the
Parliament website at: <a href="http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/offices/commons/management-board/management-board-publications1/hoc-strategy/"
Management Board has started the process of drawing up a strategy for the next Parliament,
which will build on the current one. This will draw on the views of Members, as well
as a large-scale consultation exercise with staff. Emerging ideas will be discussed
with the Commission in the new year, the intention is then to take the draft strategy
to the new Commission in the 2015 Parliament for its agreement. I have noted the hon.
Member’s suggestion to the Governance Committee that the vision should be “This House
exists to serve the people of this country and the people who represent them”, and
that seems to me an important point to reflect in the House Service’s strategy.</p>
