Lights, camera, action! Film crews to get access to Palace of Westminster

The Houses of Parliament is set for even more drama as a parliamentary committee has voted to allow film crews inside the Palace of Westminster for the first time.

The move, which is a part of plans to cut costs of running the Commons by 17% by 2015, has got a few MPs up in arms.  

Tory MP Robert Halfon said the plans risk turning Westminster into a “theme park”.

“I think it is a hugely short-sighted mistake to allow this to happen,” he said. “It is not a tourist resort. This is parliament. It should be free for the people.”
