answer text <p>The Senior Deputy Speaker has asked me, as Chairman of the Services Committee, to respond on his behalf.</p><p>The vast majority of fresh products purchased by House of Lords Catering and Retail Services (CRS) are British, and CRS has an ongoing policy to continue to increase its use of British products, taking account of procurement and value for money tests. British produce is always preferred when in season, and menus are designed to incorporate British sustainable products and showcase British seasonal produce where possible. The majority of the main ingredients in CRS dishes, such as meat, poultry, fish and dairy produce, are British.</p><p>In House of Lords bars, CRS aims to supply a range of beverages including British options; CRS has recently changed supplier to increase its offering of British craft ales and lagers.</p><p>CRS aims to increase the selection of British wines available in House of Lords restaurants and bars. Additional British wines will appear on the wine lists after the conference recess.</p><p>For the House of Lords retail shop, CRS aims to increase its ranges of British products; work is underway to develop with its suppliers products that would enhance the British selection on offer.</p>

answer text <p>The Clerk of the Parliaments is by law the employer of the staff of the House and responsible for all terms and conditions of employment. During the pandemic, the then Clerk of the Parliaments decided that Clerks at the Table during regular business of the House should wear a gown over business attire, and that this would be worn by all the Clerks at the Table. The then Lord Speaker was consulted and acknowledged the change to Table Clerk attire, on a temporary basis, though he expressed a preference for the wearing of traditional table dress and gown, but without wigs.</p><p>Having some element of uniform allowed the Clerk in the Chamber to be identified by Members in the House wishing to seek advice. The decision was taken for a number of reasons, including cost grounds, the potentially temporary duration of the new Table Clerks’ appointments, and the impracticality of acquiring new uniforms during the pandemic. Throughout the ongoing pandemic, the full uniform previously worn has continued to be worn in full at high ceremonial occasions, such as the State Opening of Parliament, and in modified form on other ceremonial occasions including Prorogation; for the Introduction Ceremonies of new Lords Spiritual and Temporal (when ceremonial dress is worn by others) and for Tributes in the Chamber.</p><p>The Clerk of the Parliaments is considering the position now that the House is no longer operating under the hybrid House guidance. The Clerk of the Parliaments has received representations on this matter from a number of Members of the House and would be very willing to hear the views of others. In deciding what the position will be in future, the Clerk of the Parliaments will need to reflect upon a number of factors including cost, efficiency, the views expressed by Members, and the public perception of the House. The Clerk of the Parliaments will also consider the need to ensure both that all Clerks at the Table are identifiable and all similarly attired; as well as the appropriate uniform given the range of other duties performed by Clerks during the working day.</p>

answer text <p>Both Houses and the Scottish Parliament organise their communications/press and public relations functions in different ways which makes it hard to compare figures directly. Consequently, the figures below simply compare the number of FTEs employed predominantly on dealing with press/media.</p><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>House of Lords</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>House of Commons</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Scottish Parliament</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>FTEs employed on press/media</strong></p></td><td><p>5</p></td><td><p>19</p></td><td><p>7</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><br> <br>These figures do not include staff employed by either House or the Scottish Parliament on marketing, digital communications, public information, visitor services, education and engagement all of which contribute to their work on public relations. We do not hold these figures in respect of the House of Commons and Scottish Parliament.</p><p><br>No assessment has been made of how these figures compare with each other.</p><p> </p>
