From last Saturday, all catering establishments in the British House of Representatives will be banned from selling alcoholic beverages, whether they serve food or not.
Speaker Lindsay Hoyle said the measure would bring the British House in line with the domestic situation in the U.K. He also said that the U.K. had decided to include London in the secondary classification as of last Saturday.
He added: Since the MPs represent different sectors of the constituency at the highest level ordered the closure of the bar I decided to stop selling alcoholic beverages products in the House of Representatives as of last Saturday.
This means that for the foreseeable future we will not be able to purchase alcoholic beverages from any food service establishment, whether food is served or not.
The House Committee will meet today to consider additional measures that need to be taken to protect Members, their staffs and House staff while maintaining our current state of security against new coronaviruses.
Lancashire will join the Liverpool City Region as a Level 3 classification. At this alert level, bars will only be allowed to remain open if they are operating as restaurants where the main meal contains alcohol.
