Interior of the House of Commons

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“The narrow room in which the House of Commons holds its sessions contains seats for less than 350 of the 707 members. The discomfort in crowding is compensated for by the ease of hearing. The representative sit on benches facing one another across the aisle. The Speaker of the House occupies a chair at the end of the room. On his right are the members of the Ministry; on his left, the Opposition. The Speaker’s symbol, the mace, is carried before him when he formally leaves and enters the House, and remains on the table while he occupies the chair."—Webster, 1920
