according to WatchmanThe Parties’ Comprehensive Review recommends that MPs not be allowed to take children into the House of Commons room during debates.
The group ruled that MPs should not bring children into the House of Commons or Westminster Hall if they wanted to “observe, initiate, speak or interfere in proceedings”.
However, he stated that there should be “a degree of discretion in reality”, which “must be exercised in moderation”.
Lindsey Hoyle was ordered to review the rules in November after Labor MP Stella Creasy was told she could no longer take her three-month-old son Pepe to the House of Commons.
The mother-of-two, who represents Walthamstow in London, hoped the review would allow her to “mix fatherhood with politics”.
So Chrissy was “shocked” when lay officials emailed her the rules, which forbid her from taking the kids to discussions.
Chrissy also said she was “not surprised” by the recommendation because the committee “hasn’t spoken to a single person outside Parliament, even though many of us encourage them to do so,” and we’re still talking about the “old rules” and “need updating.”
