To ask the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington, representing the House of Commons Commission, with reference to the ongoing discussions in the Administration Committee on the future of Blue Badge guided tours of the House, what the Commission's policy is on pausing the recruitment of in-house staff pending a final decision on the guiding service.

The House of Commons Commission has no plans to pause the recruitment of in-house tour guides because the final decision on the new guiding service was taken several months ago. It has been endorsed by the House of Commons Administration Committee and the Commission. Recruitment of 28 new members of House of Commons staff to take the majority of tours in Parliament will be completed this month.
