To ask the Chairman of Committees whether he will take to the Administration and Works Committee a proposal for placing a charging point for electric powered vehicles in the Peers' car park.

As space in the Peers' car park is at a premium, and I am not aware of a great demand for such facilities, I do not intend to take such a proposal to the Administration and Works Committee at the present time. However, Chancellor's Court already contains facilities for charging electric powered motorcycles and scooters, which are available for Members and staff to use. Furthermore, Members who belong to the Source London network may use the charging facilities provided by Source London in Abingdon Car Park, situated underneath Abingdon Green. Members may obtain passes for Abingdon Car Park by contacting Black Rod's Office (x3100).
