A number of MP’s continue to express their concern over the return to physical parliamentary addressing styles. As yesterday marked the return to parliament many officials stated their anxiety over the prospects of a possible resurgence of the coronavirus among one another.

For a long period of time MP’s have been forced to engage in parliamentary meetings virtually with only a few of them engaging with the House of Commons sessions physically.

This was of course done to decrease the chances of transmitting the coronavirus among one another during the meetings. Considering that the MP’s were not only forced to debate, address and negotiate issues of importance electronically they were also forced to vote in this manner as well.

This was effective and efficient during the period in which stricter lockdown measures were enforced but has now come to an end due to the governments phase into much more relaxed social distancing regimes.

However, many MP’s have voiced their concern for the return to parliament as being premature, as the UK is still experiencing a critical case of coronavirus infections, government officials do not see it fit to return to the House of Commons and run the risk of increasing an already pervasive number of cases.

The regulations put in place for the present MP’s during the meetings are, that they are expected to set a distance of about 2 metres apart from one another, and curate a 1 kilometre long que when voting.

Despite this being championed for by some members of parliament, a great number have opposed this new practice and express so, as one conservative cabinet member who chose to remain anonymous during an interview with Skynews claimed that the “ridiculous” plan had attracted “a lot of opposition in the party” – but the government would most likely get it through.
