The House of Parliament are patrolled by armed police and sniffer dogs 24×7 and yet over £90,000 worth of goods have been stolen from its buildings since 2010.
Items include everything from Rolex watches, iPads, laptops, cameras to champagne, an orchid, six boxes of mints and a dental mould.
The figures, revealed in response to a written parliamentary question from Tory MP, show that £11,500 worth of goods were stolen from the premises in 2014, up from £4,200 in 2013.
In 2012, things worth £17,500 were stolen. However, 2011 is the worst year in record since the coalition with £43,600 worth of stuff stolen.
Last year, Labour MP Dennis Skinner, 82, was left distressed after his 18-gear hybrid bike was stolen from the parliament.
He told the Daily Mail: “It was parked 20 yards from a police box – but they can’t keep an eye on my bike all day long.
“I have always cycled and then I had a heart bypass. I have always walked and so on and kept pretty fit,” he added.
