Parliament U-turns on exempting own bars from 10pm curfew


Parliament has U-turned over the sale of alcohol on its premises, deciding to follow the 10pm curfew imposed on all pubs, bars and restaurants.

Initially, The Times reported licenced premises on the estate could stay open after the deadline because MPs and peers sometimes work late into the night.

But after a backlash, authorities decided alcohol "will not be sold after 10pm".

They added catering facilities will stay open later when debates are still going later "to serve food for those still working".
