As I write this article the Prime Minister has just decided to delay the meaningful vote on the ‘Withdrawal Agreement’, to allow her to get some sort of assurance from the other 27 members of the EU on the Irish backstop.

In addition to their salary, MPs are allowed to claim various expenses to enable them carry out duties on behalf of constituents
These expenses cover things such as running offices in the constituency and Westminster, the paying of staff, as well as claiming for a second home, which is a necessary expense for many MPs who have to spend part of the week in Westminster.
Since the General Election of 2010 the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority monitors and sets MPs expenses. They regularly publish Members expenses online on a 3 monthly basis. For more details go here>>.
A full tour of the Palace of Westminster takes in Sovereign's Entrance, Norman Porch, Royal Gallery, Prince's Chamber, the House of Lords Chamber, Central Lobby, Voting Lobby, Members' Lobby, the House of Commons Chamber, St Stephen's Hall and Westminster Hall.
Due to the strong demand for these tours, it is best to get in touch at least 3 months before your planned visit.
