Register of Interests

All House Service staff are required to declare potential and actual conflicts of interest to their line manager. This helps manage risks relating to conflicts of interest, which can arise between the personal interests of individuals involved in making decisions and the decisions that the governing body or staff need to make in the public interest.

The registered interests of senior House Service staff (grade SCS2 and above or members of the Commons Executive Board) are published on this website in line with other existing proactive publications.
