Recall of Parliament
Today both Houses of Parliament have been recalled from recess to pay tribute to Baroness Thatcher. There have been 25 recalls of Parliament since 1948. Both Houses will meet at 14.30. If you wish to watch, BBC Parliament will be broadcasting (Channel 81 on Freeview and Channel 504 on Sky); and on the internet you can access both Houses at Parliamentlive.tv and democracylive.
The House of Commons Library has a short paper on the recall of Parliament. It is available here.
