Chair of the Procedure Committee, Karen Bradley MP said:
"We are grateful to the Leader of the House for agreeing to give evidence to us on a range of issues, including remote participation.
"The Committee looks forward to getting clarity from him on the Government’s future plans for the conduct of Commons business in this and future phases of the pandemic.
"My Committee will continue to monitor House procedure and practice under coronavirus conditions as those conditions develop, taking further evidence as appropriate and reporting to the House where necessary.”
