To ask the hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire, representing the House of Commons Commission, what assessment he has made of the security risk to hon. Members congregating in open areas of the parliamentary estate as a result of the arrangements for physical divisions during the covid-19 outbreak; and if he will make a statement.

Whilst the Commission does not comment in public on security matters, an assessment of the security risks to hon. Members was made before physical divisions resumed, with ongoing assessments also in place. The security of hon. Members is of the highest importance and suitable mitigations have been put in place to minimise any potential risks.
