Petition Action

Include information on all MPs' additional incomes in Parliamentary broadcasts.

Petition Details

Amend the Parliamentary Television Rules of Coverage to make the Host Broadcaster responsible for an on-screen caption relating to the Member who has the floor, identifying them and their accumulated total of financial interests as recorded in Register of Members' Financial Interests at that time.

Additional Information

It is evident that many MP's have other incomes which could influence their decision making throughout their parliamentary career. The extent of this is not readily accessible to the public. With the aim of further informing viewers about this, during parliamentary debates, it would be helpful if additional information was displayed via Parliamentary TV. This would make information recorded in Register of Members' Financial Interests much more accessible to the public.
