The BBC report that the Houses of Parliament will be available as a wedding venue to members of the public for the first time. Until now, only MPs, peers, certain parliamentary officials and their families could be married in conventional weddings there. But now Westminster City Council has granted a licence approving two rooms in the Palace of Westminster to be used for marriages and civil partnerships. The Jubilee Room, which overlooks Cromwell Green, has space for 80 people and the MPs' dining room, with views of the Thames, has space for 150.
At last a practical use for the Houses of Parliament.
