Parliamentary commission highlights role of interns:

The House of Commons Commission’s report on Employment of Members’ staff by the House , published yesterday, sets out proposed changes to the staff-employer relationship in the House of Commons.

There isn’t a great deal in the report to cheer interns, whose status it recommends remains that of non-employees. It does however highlight the fact that if expected to: ‘work at specific times or to complete specific work, they are no longer volunteers but employees and some employment legislation will apply, such as the minimum wage’.
