The implications of the congestion charge for staff of the House who have to work unsocial hours have been considered carefully. As I said in my reply to Mr. Chope on 20 November 2002, Hansard, column 151W, the Commission will continue to keep an eye on developments, but has no current plans to reimburse employees.
