Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (14 Feb 2024)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton, will be taking part remotely.

Parliamentary Estate: Traffic Marshals - Question ( 8 Feb 2024)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: My Lords, safety on the Parliamentary Estate is a matter for the Clerk of the Parliaments and the Clerk of the House, who delegate responsibility for the traffic management system to Strategic Estates, a bicameral team. Regular reviews have taken place since the one-way system was implemented, and marshal numbers have been reduced where possible. The most recent review took place last month....

Parliamentary Estate: Traffic Marshals - Question ( 8 Feb 2024)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: My Lords, as I said, this is a bicameral health and safety matter and is the responsibility of the two clerks, but I certainly see no difficulty if the Finance Committee wishes to look into the contract and all matters relating to that. I have not spoken to the Finance Committee, as this is an immediate question, but I see no difficulty in so doing. On the issue of recesses, I should say...

Parliamentary Estate: Traffic Marshals - Question ( 8 Feb 2024)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: My Lords, the Parliamentary Safety Assurance Board and the Logistics Steering Group—both boards of officials of both Houses—gave approval to this additional mitigation. This is in the context of speed bumps, zebra crossings, traffic calming signs and, wherever possible, traffic/pedestrian segregation. I should also say, perhaps for some sceptics, that in the last year there were eight...

Parliamentary Estate: Traffic Marshals - Question ( 8 Feb 2024)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: My Lords, contracts are let by the Parliamentary Commercial Directorate through a public sector procurement framework. Traffic marshals are paid £13 per hour during the day shift, but of course the responsibility for the marshals rests with the contractor; we are not directly paying the marshals.

Parliamentary Estate: Traffic Marshals - Question ( 8 Feb 2024)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: My Lords, risk assessments are taken very seriously. They do not come under my responsibility, but my information is that Strategic Estates has a duty, on behalf of the clerks, to look at this rigorously. This was in the context of a one-way system that was needed because of the works in New Palace Yard. As I said, there have been eight reported near misses—that is just the reported...

Parliamentary Estate: Traffic Marshals - Question ( 8 Feb 2024)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: My Lords, the noble Lord knows that I have considerable respect for him, but we should be proud of this building and what it represents around the world. We are a very active Chamber and I see nothing but vibrancy in the work of the House of Lords. If we believe in culture and heritage, we have to make old buildings work and have a purpose. We are a living building, with a lot of people...

Parliamentary Estate: Traffic Marshals - Question ( 8 Feb 2024)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: This is important not only for enabling people with access difficulties to get into the building more safely but for the security of the Palace.

Parliamentary Estate: Traffic Marshals - Question ( 8 Feb 2024)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: My Lords, I am sure that all these matters will be and are considered by Strategic Estates. I understand that there was an experiment with a traffic light that was not quite as successful as hoped. I am sure that the point the noble Baroness makes will be heard.

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: The current level of Private Bill fees was agreed to by the House on 27 March 2000, and the consequent amendments to Private Business Standing Orders agreed to on 24 July 2000, following a recommendation of the Select Committee of House of Lords’ Offices (4th Report, Session 1999-2000, HL Paper 45).
