More than 100 residents from Haldens and Panshanger enjoyed a tour around the Houses of Parliament with Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps.

The evening started with a talk and Q&A session in a third Parliamentary debating chamber, before the former Tory Party co-chairman led the group around.

They visited Westminster Hall, the oldest part of the estate dating back to 1097, as well as the central lobby, a voting lobby and then the House of Commons Chamber.

Following the tour, Mr Shapps said: “It is my great privilege to serve as Welwyn Hatfield Member of Parliament and it’s great to be able to take constituents around this extraordinary place and to share some of the history that it has seen over the centuries.”
