More about House of Commons

Vision and Values

The Westminster Parliament is a unique institution, known world-wide and the House of Commons is the central element in our democracy. It is supported by the House of Commons Service.

The House Service of nearly 2,000 people is a high-achieving, professional organisation supporting the parliamentary process in a remarkable variety of ways.

We are not civil servants (we serve the Legislature, not the Executive) and we are rigidly politically impartial. We have great pride in what we do, and in the vision and values which guide our work.


The House of Commons is committed to being an inclusive employer.

At the House of Commons we aim to provide a positive, inclusive working environment where people are valued for the skills and experience that they bring to work. Our aim is to be representative of the society we serve. This means making parliament more accessible, diverse and free from discrimination.

All staff deserve, and should expect, to be treated with respect for who they are and what they do. This treatment should be consistent and inclusive.

Inclusivity means not excluding people on the grounds of their age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, and pregnancy and maternity, or any other irrelevant attribute.
