Catering Services in the House of Commons

Written evidence submitted by Fiona Mactaggart MP

I do not have time to write a considered response to your review, but I have always believed that there should be access to a pleasant affordable restaurant where members of both houses can eat together.

And this week I experienced the new fixed price system in the members dining room and it is ridiculous and should be ended. I do not want three courses and previous bills there which I have incurred have usually been around £10. I know prices have gone up, but I do not find it acceptable to pay £15 to dine if I just want one course.

And the salads in the members tea room are too cold.
