Britain’s House of Commons Commission – the body that oversees parliament’s administrative services – is in the process of finding an external media adviser to fulfil a three-year contract. A decision is expected next month.

The role involves overseeing relations with the media and increasing the profile of the commission, the speaker of the House of Commons (currently Michael Martin) and parliament in general.

One person applying for the job is John Stonborough, who six months ago became the first external candidate to fill the role and subsequently handled media relations during accusations of “dirty tricks” against former parliamentary commissioner Elizabeth Filkin.
