§ Mr. Freeman
Right hon. and hon. Members may by mutual agreement with local armed forces units visit defence establishments within their constituency; and similar arrangements may be made for Front Bench defence spokesmen in respect of defence establishments outside their constituency. Hon. and right hon. Members may also visit defence establishments as part of all-party parliamentary groups whose plans are drawn to the attention of hon. and right hon. Members.
These arrangements are intended to assist hon. and right hon. Members in the conduct of their parliamentary duties, while minimising disruption to the normal conduct of military activities and maintaining the political impartiality of the armed forces.
