Facilities of the House — 18 Dec 2001 at 21:49
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
I beg to move,
That, with effect from 8th January 2002, those Members who have chosen not to take their seats and thus do not qualify to participate in the proceedings in Parliament may use the facilities within the precincts of the House and the services of departments of the House, and may claim support for their costs as set out in the Resolution of 5th July 2001, relating to Members' Allowances, Insurance &c., and the allowances relating to travel within the United Kingdom for Members, their families and staff.

"the completion of decommissioning, as verified by the Independent International Commission on Decommissioning".
