Commonwealth parliamentary assembly status change not ‘much to ask’

MP for Bridgewater and West Summerset, Ian Liddell-Grainger spoke to the House, urging the government to give the Commonwelathparliamentary assembly (CPA) a legal status “simular to that enjoyed by comparable organisations”.

The Conservative MP explained the CPA’s role in building “a wide-ranging perception of parliamentary democracies” across the world.

This bill would allow the CPA to have “yet more points of influence”, something Liddell-Grainger does not believe “is much to ask”.
