Further to your answer to Question 2014/3584 where you confirmed that Parliament will be in the managed area of the event, enabling MPs, Peers and their guests to enjoy the New Year's Eve fireworks for free, will you consider approaching the parliamentary authorities and ask that parliamentarians, staff and their guests who enjoy the New Year's Eve fireworks from the Parliamentary estate are encouraged to contribute to the financing of the firework display or to make a donation to the Mayor's Fund for London?
