‘Covid has changed everything and the House must change too,’ is the strong message from Wealden’s Tory MP Nus Ghani.

She’s not happy MPs are returning to London on January 11, not Monday as planned.

She said: “The Leader of the House is already aware of my concerns about the House not sitting next week.

Of course, like my colleagues, I will continue to represent and work with my constituents across Wealden, but I do that best when I am here in the House. 

Will he confirm that the reason why the House will not sit next week is that we need to protect the staff who enable this House to perform?

If that is the case, will he work with all other authorities in the House to make sure that there is enough resilience among staff and that we use the best technology possible so that we do not find ourselves in this situation again?

Covid has changed everything, and the House must change too.”
