Legislators were arguing on the tax policy while water started dropping into the press area slipping legislators seats, pushing Deputy Speaker Lindsay Hoyle to postpone the session.
Concerning the noise of showering water, Parliament Member, Justin Madders told, “ I hope I can complete my speech before rain stopped play. I think there is probably some kind of symbol, about how many people view how broken parliament is, going on there.”
The sitting in the lower chamber, the House of Commons, was then terminated more than two hours early. The upper chamber, the House of Lords resumed debate Brexit in a differentiated part of the building.
The Palace of Westminster – separates of which date back to 1097 – has been skidding into decay for the decades, requisition frequent repairs and modifications. Much of the decaying limestone exterior is attired in scaffolding.
The scheme is being made for a restoration programme worth of multi-billion pound and this plan could requisite parliament to be replaced temporarily to another building, but the proceedings have been detained with many legislators conflicted to give up their conventional settings.
