27. Mr. John Mark
Taylor asked the Lord Privy Seal what representations he has received regarding the number of Members' research assistants currently holding House of Commons passes.
§ Mr. Biffen
I refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Wansdyke (Mr. Thompson) on 19 November 1986 which indicated that 523 research assistants held temporary and full Palace of Westminster photo-identity passes, and broke these down by nationality. I have had no other representations recently.
