Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Parliamentary Estate: Recycling ( 5 Maw 2015)

John Thurso: My hon. Friend asks me a question to which I do not have an accurate answer—or, rather, to which I do not have an answer. I am sure that an accurate answer exists, but I just do not have it. I should make that distinction quite clear. However, what we do is operate to the waste hierarchy, of which I am sure he is aware. First, we try to ensure that the waste does not happen. When it does...

Written Answers — House of Commons Commission: Conditions of Employment ( 2 Maw 2015)

John Thurso: The House does not routinely collect this information from contractors operating on the parliamentary estate and has no plans to do so. The House is committed to offering guaranteed minimum hours contracts to all directly-employed staff on call-off (zero hours) contracts and has completed a process of offering guaranteed minimum hours contracts to all affected staff.

Nature: House of Commons Commission Bill (24 Chw 2015)

John Thurso: I quite understand the hon. Gentleman’s point, I just fundamentally disagree with it. It is not in the Bill, so we can leave it until later.

Nature: House of Commons Commission Bill (24 Chw 2015)

John Thurso: The Bill proves that great things come in small packages. Brevity in a Bill can lead to excellent clarity of statute, a model that anybody forming a Government could look to follow in the future. I thank the Leader of the House and the shadow Leader of the House for having been able to bring the Bill before the House so that the provisions can be put into statute to enable the next...

Written Answers — House of Commons Commission: Correspondence (23 Chw 2015)

John Thurso: The number of letters sent from the House of Commons to Government Departments via the Inter-Despatch Service (IDS) over the period for which records are held is listed below. No count was made of individual items before May 2012 and so no information is available prior to this date. Number of items 2012 (May–Dec) 31,849 2013 42,243 2014 36,512 2015 (Jan) 3,426

Written Answers — House of Commons Commission: House of Commons: Buildings (12 Chw 2015)

John Thurso: The value of the contract works for resurfacing the Canon Row carriageway and the pavings around the north and west sides of Norman Shaw North is £372,857 excluding VAT. The paving stones in both Canon Row and around Norman Shaw North are either lifting or breaking up. By relaying the carriageways in asphalt rather than replacing the stones, future maintenance costs will be reduced. In...

Written Ministerial Statements — House of Commons Commission: House of Commons - Governance (11 Chw 2015)

John Thurso: At its meeting on 9 February, the House of Commons Commission again considered implementation of the recommendations of the Committee on House of Commons Governance. The Commission agreed a job specification and recruitment process for the new post of Director General of the House of Commons. The recruitment process will commence shortly with the intention that a long list of candidates will...

Written Answers — House of Commons Commission: Employment Agencies ( 2 Chw 2015)

John Thurso: The information is not available in the format requested. The House of Commons had its own Recruitment Framework which it used to source non-specialist temporary staff from 2010/11 to 2012/13. Since 2013/14 the House has used the Crown Commercial Service’s Non-Medical Non-Clinical Framework. There were up to 30 potential suppliers on the House of Commons Recruitment Framework. There are 143...

Written Ministerial Statements — House of Commons Commission: House of Commons — Governance (27 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: (Representing the House of Commons Commission): On 22 January the House of Commons agreed a motion supporting the recommendations in the report of the Select Committee on House of Commons Governance. The House of Commons Commission held an additional meeting on 26 January to ensure a speedy start to implementation of the Committee’s recommendations. At its meeting, the Commission agreed a...

House of Commons Governance (22 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: I have added my name to the motion and speak in support of it. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Blackburn (Mr Straw), and his Committee and staff, on their excellent work. Before he set off, I thought to myself that the Committee would be jolly lucky to get the report in on time and that it would need an extension, but not only has the right hon. Gentleman beaten the deadline, he has...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Draft Scotland Clauses (22 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: May I, too, commend the Government for publishing the clauses and making this statement? The Smith commission recommendations, if properly enacted, are a blueprint for home rule delivered, and the clauses will ensure that. However, the devil is always in the detail, and it will require good will to work through the process in the coming months and ensure that the recommendations are properly...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Houses of Parliament: Shared Services (22 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: There has been no overall assessment of the potential financial savings from increased joint working with the House of Lords. Subject to what is said later today in the debate on the report by the House of Commons Governance Committee, the Commission expects to write to the Lords House Committee shortly to propose an initial joint meeting later this year. I would not be surprised if the...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Houses of Parliament: Shared Services (22 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: As the hon. Gentleman will know, both Houses are sovereign, so we must make progress through dialogue and agreement. However, I am much encouraged by how the joint service for procurement was set up last year, and I believe that there is an appetite in both Houses to reach agreement. I will certainly do all I can to assist in that.

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Houses of Parliament: Shared Services (22 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: I thank my hon. Friend for that extremely interesting question. I would observe that when one is appointed chief executive of an organisation in the private sector, one is in charge, one takes responsibility and one gets on with it. In this place and the other place, we are responsible to the Members, so it is necessary to have a structure that properly reflects that. One therefore tries to...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Houses of Parliament: Shared Services (22 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: I agree wholeheartedly with the hon. Gentleman and that is exactly what has been happening. Let us consider, for example, what is happening with the security services being brought in-house. That is the most effective model and will deliver the best service. The joint procurement service has been put together between the two Houses. The primary reason for that was to increase governance, but...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Parliamentary Digital Service (22 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: Rob Greig, currently chief technology officer at the Royal Opera House, has been appointed as director of the Parliamentary Digital Service. His main duties will be to develop and implement a digital strategy for Parliament and bring together Parliamentary Information and Communications Technology and the Web and Intranet Service into a unified, digital service. A copy of his job description...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Parliamentary Digital Service (22 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: I preface my answer by saying that our important debate this afternoon will touch on a great many of these matters. Such things are currently being debated and need to be worked out. This is a bicameral appointment which, under the Parliament (Joint Departments) Act 2007, is made by the corporate officers of the two Houses. We will clearly have to work out the best line management going...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Parliamentary Digital Service (22 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: If the hon. Gentleman will allow me, I will look into that specific case because I do not have an accurate answer for him. My belief is that a repair service would fall under PICT and should be provided, but I would like to check and give him an accurate answer.

Written Answers — House of Commons Commission: House of Commons: Shops (22 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: The Houses of Parliament Shop (formerly the Parliamentary Bookshop) on Bridge Street stocks a small selection of political books, primarily recently published, best-selling titles. The Commission supports the buying manager’s current policy that, within these parameters, women authors are represented in the range wherever possible.

Written Answers — House of Commons Commission: Palace of Westminster (22 Ion 2015)

John Thurso: Given the interest of the House of Lords in this matter the Commission has welcomed the proposal from the Clerks of both Houses that we should establish a Joint Committee following the general election. This would enable both Houses to make an informed decision on the basis of a report from that Joint Committee. As far as this House is concerned the Commission would expect a decision of this...
