Should the Commons be more family friendly?

Ruth Tarrant

11th February 2016

An opinion poll conducted by BMG showed today that a majority of the public wants Common rules to be changed to be more family friendly and supportive to pregnant MPs. Three quarters of people think that being an MP is not family-friendly, and a majority supported changing the working hours in Parliament to be similar to those in the private sector.
