To ask the hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire, representing the House of Commons Commission, how many Parliamentary staff have tested positive for covid-19; what support is available to those staff members; and if he will make a statement.
Testing is available to all staff of the House where they or a member of their household are symptomatic. Testing is arranged directly by the individual, who then receives the results directly. The records held by the House will only indicate whether the member of staff is available for work or not. The full range of HR and wellbeing support remains available for staff at all times.
