MPs may be provided to police officers or private security guards in weekly member surgery to provide additional protection after the killing of Sir David Ames.
Sir Lindsay Hoyle said she was looking for ways to improve security “closely and at a pace” with Home Secretary Priti Patel and police.
Patel, who ordered police to urgently review the safety measures of all lawmakers when he visited Leonsea on Saturday to pay tribute to Mr. Ames, continues to be a civilian.
Senior sources involved in the review said The Sunday Times: “We cannot have a disconnect between members of parliament and their members, so we need to ensure that members of parliament can continue to meet the general public safely.
“I don’t want to anticipate security reviews, but one way to reassure the MP is to give police officers or private security guards the option to attend the surgery.”
Ames, 69, was stabbed several times during public advice surgery for his members in Essex on Friday.
His murder occurred just five years after Labor lawmaker Jo Cox was murdered outside the library, where she was about to undergo surgery on a member.
The man arrested by police after the murder is widely referred to as Ali Harbi Ali, a 25-year-old British citizen of Somali heritage.
He is currently detained at a police station in London under the 2000 Terrorism Act.
It is understood that the suspect was previously known for the government’s counterterrorism program, the Prevention Plan.
After the attack, the threat and scale of abuse faced by parliamentarians is once again in the limelight.
A BBC survey of parliamentarians in 2019 found that more than 60% of respondents contacted police about threats within the previous year.
Many lawmakers were attacked and suspended face-to-face member meetings, but some lawmakers, including Conservative lawmakers Robert Logan and Alex Sherbrooke, underwent surgery on Saturday without special protection. I proceeded.
Others believe that a more cautious approach is needed before the meeting resumes. Labor Party Diahnne Abbott, who had previously been threatened with murder, said he wanted to meet voters behind the screen to prevent possible attacks.
Meanwhile, Conservative Tobias Ellwood, who conducted a CPR at PC Keith Palmer during a terrorist attack in Westminster in 2017, urged colleagues to suspend face-to-face meetings until a security review was completed.
