Response

A list of individuals holding Former Members’ passes to the parliamentary estate, as at 2 November 2015.

Please note that this list does not include former Members who hold passes in other capacities such as Members of the House of Lords, Members’ Staff, etc.

It may interest you to know that former Members of Parliament who have served more than a full parliamentary term, and those who have served one full parliamentary term and have been defeated at a General Election, may apply for a photo identity pass known as a Former Members’ Pass. Former Members’ passes are not provided to any Member convicted of a criminal offence and sentenced to a period of imprisonment of one year or more. The Former Members’ Pass entitles the holder limited access to the Parliamentary Estate unescorted; they may access certain areas for the purpose of meetings, and make use of a limited selection of catering facilities during certain hours. They may not use any other facilities within Parliament, and are forbidden from using their pass in connection with lobbying activity.
