Important information for people planning on returning to the Parliamentary estate from Monday 11th January 2021.
The House of Commons will be returning from recess on Monday 11th January. Only colleagues necessary to the continued functioning of the Estate and parliamentary business, or related support services, should be working on-site, with all others working remotely. If you’re unsure, please discuss this with your line manager.
If you need to visit the Pass Office, please note that since July 2020 the Derby Gate Pass Office has operated an appointment service, to assist with making the environment COVID secure for everyone and only a very limited drop in service is available at the start of every hour. Without an appointment we cannot guarantee you will be seen. Please click here to make an appointment to collect your security pass, if required.
If you are returning to Parliament next week, please check your security pass is still valid. If you need to renew your pass or security clearance the forms are available here.
Derby Gate Pass Issuing Office are open 8:00 – 18:00 Monday to Thursday and 8:00 – 16:00 on Fridays. The first twenty minutes of every hour allow for a drop in service at Derby Gate, if you have forgotten your security pass.
A drop-in service will be available at the Black Rod’s Garden Pass Issuing Office during the hours of 9:00 – 13:00. This may be subject to change, depending on the level of demand, and opening times can be checked here, if required.
Drop-in appointments are very limited and are for emergencies only, so please ensure that you book an appointment to avoid delays.
Thank you for your co-operation and support.
