Three women members of parliament have been assigned personal security detail due to concerns for their safety.

According to the Sunday Times, three women elected officials from the Conservative and Labour parties were provided with personal security and transportation services due to concerns for their safety. This decision was made after a thorough evaluation of potential risks.

Unnamed Members of Parliament (MPs) have been provided with security measures such as private protection from companies and transportation in chauffeur-driven vehicles. According to a source in the security sector, numerous MPs are fearful due to the mistreatment they are experiencing.

It is reported that Tom Tugendhat, the minister in charge of security, has collaborated with the Home Office, police leaders, and parliamentary officials to strengthen the protection and well-being of Members of Parliament.

Recently, a new protocol has been implemented where the Ravec, a committee dedicated to the protection of the royal family and high-ranking politicians, has been utilized to evaluate potential dangers to Members of Parliament (MPs), as reported by the Sunday Times.

After Lindsay Hoyle, the speaker of the House of Commons, expressed concern about the increasing danger posed to politicians by far-right groups.

Hoyle expressed worry over the safety of MPs, which influenced his decision to deviate from tradition and permit Labour to propose a vote during an SNP discussion advocating for an urgent halt to the conflict in Gaza.

He assured Members of Parliament: “I am committed to protecting every member of this House. Regardless of political affiliation, I never want to receive a call informing me that a friend has been killed by terrorists. I also do not want to see an attack on this House.”

Hoyle stated that the information he has received is incredibly alarming. He feels responsible for ensuring the safety of others, and this responsibility caused him to make an incorrect decision.

In 2016, Jo Cox, a member of the Labour party, was killed by Thomas Mair, a far-right extremist, during a meeting in Birstall, West Yorkshire.
