The new speaker, John Bercow, will be speaking at an event in October on the importance of a fair and accessible internship system in parliament.
The reform of Parliament does not just include expenses or outside incomes… but the way the whole system is run. This begins with basic rights for those that work in MPs offices. The 450 or so interns, working 18,000 hours a week deserve representation and minimum wage. With reformer Bercow on board we can see the start of a successful campaign.
