Communications Allowance — Kevin voted ‘No’.

This House welcomes the principle of establishing, from 1st April 2007, a separate Allowance for Members of Parliament to assist in the work of communicating with the public on parliamentary business and instructs the Members Estimate Committee[1] to prepare a detailed proposal for such an allowance.

Well Kevin Barron didn’t welcome it – he rebelled against the party (something he does on less than 1.5% of votes – a pretty rare occurrence) and voted against this measure.

I would love to know why he voted against. I wouldn’t imagine it would make much difference to him: he doesn’t seem to spend much on communicating with his constituents at all. Kevin, you don’t have a website, you don’t write leaflets, you don’t call … Surely you don’t take our votes for granted?
