Speaker's correspondence (2016)

Request

Copies of all letters/emails from members of the public to the Speaker regarding PMQs and the general conduct of MPs in the Commons, including references to noise, shouting, rudeness, and the speaker's conduct in dealing with unruly MPs. I am aware that all letters/emails are routinely destroyed/deleted every three months, so am requesting all correspondence that is still held at the time of this request.

 

 

 

Response

Copies of all relevant correspondence, sent from members of the public to Mr Speaker and held at the time of your request:
