It may also help you to know that those who use the space that the furniture occupies include some of the 650 elected Members of Parliament. However, also using the space are around 14,500 other pass-holders (MPs' staff, House staff, civil servants, contractors, Peers, members of the Press Gallery, etc.) as well as a large number of non-pass holding visitors to Parliament.
