Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Parliamentary Commissions (20 Maw 2014)

John Thurso: I do not quite share the hon. Gentleman’s definition of de minimis. Standing Order No. 22C would take de minimis as below £50,000, and I think that saving, or spending, £175,000 would be above de minimis. However, his point that the resource required would be well within the scope of the resources provided is a good one. As I say, it would be for the House and its relevant Committees to...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Education Centre (20 Maw 2014)

John Thurso: I cannot at this moment give the hon. Lady an exact date, but it is hoped that the centre will be open in 2015, probably just after the election. As for her first point, as one who represents the most northerly constituency on the mainland of the United Kingdom—and long may it remain united—I must say that it was a tremendous pleasure to welcome children from Kinlochbervie and Wick high...

Written Answers — House of Commons Commission: Support: Hon. Members (20 Maw 2014)

John Thurso: The fundamental aims of the Commission are not only to ensure that the House is valued and effective in holding the Government to account and scrutinising legislation, but that individual Members have the information, advice, support and technology they need to be effective in their work and to engage closely with their constituents.

The number of mouse sightings reported on the Estate over the last four...

Written Answers — House of Commons Commission: Pest Control (11 Maw 2014)
