That this House notes that almost half of hon. Members do not support the call to rename the St Stephen's Tower in spite of intensive lobbying; believes that no change should take place without parliamentary debate and approval; is convinced that it would be inappropriate to associate both towers in the palace with the Crown; notes that because the Victoria Tower is situated at the Royal end of the Palace representing the Crown, a proper balance would be achieved by renaming the St Stephen's Tower Democracy Tower at the Commons' end of the Palace; asserts that this would be consistent with the Commons historic separation of the functions of the Commons and Crown; and is convinced that the title Democracy Tower would commemorate appropriately the great reforms in British democracy achieved by the Chartists and Suffragettes through decisions of the Commons that have been long undervalued by Commons authorities.

leave out from `House' to end and add `believes that the St Stephen's Tower should be a monument to the freedom of the British people; however further believes that it should be renamed Freedom Tower, rather than Democracy Tower, as democratic freedom is just one pillar of the UK's free society, which also depends on respect for property rights, religious tolerance, the rule of law, a free press and a vigorous political opposition.'.
