Since announcing the charge in an e-mail to Members and their staff on 24 February 2012, three e-mails expressing concern regarding the charge for Clock Tower Tours have been received by the Central Communications Team in the Office of the chief executive. None have been received directly by the Commission. An Early Day Motion opposing the introduction of charges has been tabled, and has been signed by 23 hon. Members (as at 7 March).
