Substantially wrong[edit]

The Norman Shaw buildings are still used as parliamentary offices (in addition to Portcullis House). The police building is next to Norman Shaw and is not New Scotland Yard, it's simply the Parliament / Whitehouse MET —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.68.55.190 (talkcontribs) 18:35, 18 April 2004

No, it is not simply the Parliament police station. It is the HQ of Territorial Policing - a badly defined body which appears to govern 'local' policing in London and possibly the whole of the UK. --Chrisfow 22:44, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

I wonder...[edit]

There is also a Post Office and the 'e-Library' where Members and staff may use networked computers.

I wonder:

A: What their IP(s) are, and hence logically, B: If we get any vandalisms from them.

Be interesting to know ;D 68.39.174.238 20:17, 20 January 2006 (UTC)


Clarification please: 'the corners are hung from the roof'???? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.80.135.84 (talkcontribs) 16:45, 19 March 2006


How much was it estimated to cost and what was the final cost?robinb 17:05, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

To answer 68.39.174.238's question (although four and a half years late), they do indeed have an IP adress, and there is indeed vandalism from it! Here's its talk page. —Half Price 16:53, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Energy-saving claims[edit]

The building was promoted as a showcase of eco-technology. But many of its hi-tech innovations have failed. What about the 30% energy-saving provision? Some say it has lived up to this. Others say not. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.144.247.240 (talk) 23:56, 30 March 2009 (UTC)


Previous buildings[edit]

Does anyone know what builds were on the site before ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.196.158.131 (talk) 17:40, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
