star this property answer text <p>The Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS) uses the Check Point URL filtering service to categorise websites, and currently blocks a range of categories of website from the Parliamentary Estate, including “Hate/Racism”. PDS does not control which websites are put into which category by the filtering service; this is an automated process conducted at an industry level.</p><p>It is not possible to provide an accurate figure regarding the annual cost of the service as it is one of a number of services provided within a contract. With over one billion websites to categorise, it is not practicable for the filtering service to report to PDS in respect of its categorising decisions for particular websites. While it would be possible for PDS to unblock a website that has been included in a blocked category, there are no plans to unblock the “Religion of Peace” website, which has been included in the “Hate/Racism” category, because the site does not appear to have been incorrectly categorised.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Both Houses have decided that the next steps of the Restoration &amp; Renewal Programme should be overseen by a Sponsor Board and Delivery Authority. It is expected that the Commission of each House will therefore immediately focus on establishing those bodies in shadow form. Until the shadow Sponsor Board has been appointed, the Programme will continue to be delivered under the governance of the bicameral Programme Board, which consists of officials from both Houses plus two external members, and acts with authority delegated from the Board and Accounting Officer of each House. Establishing both bodies in substantive form will require primary legislation.</p><p>The Programme Team, supported by its client advisory services consultants, CH2M and BDP, will continue work in the following areas:</p><ul><li>further investigation and documentation of the current physical condition of the Palace of Westminster and its building services;</li><li>further studies on the feasibility of the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre as temporary accommodation for the House of Lords;</li><li>design of Richmond House as temporary accommodation for the House of Commons, which is being taken forward as part of the Commons’ Northern Estate Programme;</li><li>development of a client brief for the design of the works to the Palace of Westminster;</li><li>the development of the required Outline Business Cases (OBCs), compliant with HM Treasury’s <em>Green Book</em>; and</li><li>a further round of medium-term mechanical and electrical, public health and conservation work to mitigate the operational risks to Parliament presented by the condition of the building between now and the commencement of the construction phase of the R&amp;R Programme.</li></ul><p>The design phase will require extensive consultation with Members of both Houses, as well as a wide range of other stakeholders including staff, third-party occupants of the Parliamentary Estate, visitors and other members of society throughout the United Kingdom. It is anticipated that this engagement work will be developed and taken forward by the shadow Sponsor Board once it is established later this year.</p><p>In the meantime, members of the Programme Team would be happy to receive suggestions and ideas from Members of both Houses. They can be contacted via <a href="mailto:restorationandrenewal@parliament.uk" target="_blank">restorationandrenewal@parliament.uk</a>.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The role of traffic marshals has been reviewed regularly since their implementation. Over the summer, a thorough review of the current traffic management system, including traffic marshals, was carried out. The review recommended the one-way traffic system remain in place, but also recognised that users of the Estate have become used to the traffic system and that it is now part of “business as usual.” This means that while the risk assessment still recommends traffic mitigations, including traffic marshals, the number of marshals can be reduced. The number will be revised to five operating traffic marshals, plus one supervisor and two relief marshals, down from a previous 11 marshals.</p><p>Aside from the review mentioned above, the traffic management system is reviewed whenever there is a change or incident related to logistics and traffic on the Estate.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Further to my Written Answers on 5 February (HL5378) and on 6 March (HL5733) and the Written Answer from Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon on 5 February (HL5379), the percentage of the total cost in each case represented by members of the House of Lords is dependent on the overall number of Peers on the delegations concerned, and other factors, notably the amount of time spent on their work as members of the delegations. Allocation of places on the delegations is a matter for the political parties and it would be up to them to decide what account to take of these costs in allocating places on the delegations.</p> more like this
