Edit
Trivia The set of the House of Commons chamber is the same one that was a part of Granada Studios Tour. It was purchased personally by the scriptwriter Paul Abbott so it could be used in the drama; otherwise it would have been destroyed when the Tour closed, and he feared it would take too long to get the necessary money from the BBC. It is currently kept in storage in Oxford. See more »
