Commons need to adopt Equal Opportunities.


In the light of recent exposures relating to a Tory MP employing family members and many other MPs doing the same; the time has come to end this dubious practice. The Commons having legislated on Equal Opportunities should adopt a formula in accordance with the spirit and meaning of the legislation. Better still the Houses of Parliament should have their own employed staff selected by advertizing vacancies, open competition, interview and references in accordance with equal opportunities legislation and available to deal with the business of individual Members.
The current practice of employing family members stinks of patronage and is unacceptable in the 21st Century.
