There are some rules of the Parliament of each country and sometimes these rules keep changing with everyone's consent. In this episode, the dress code for MPs has been implemented by the British Parliament. MPs will no longer be able to come to Parliament wearing jeans, sportswear, t-shirts, or sleeveless tops. Not only this, the speaker has issued a warning letter, in which all the MPs have been asked to come to the house in a proper parliamentary dress.

In fact, Parliamentary proceedings have started again from Monday after the end of the holidays in Britain's House of Commons. Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle has updated the rules of behavior and etiquette in the House of Commons for MPs. After Corona, Parliament in Britain will no longer run on Zoom. Lindsay has barred MPs from wearing jeans or sportswear to parliament. They have issued a new dress code.

In the new guidelines given to the MPs for the dress code, it was told that they should not come to the house wearing jeans, chinos, sportswear, t-shirts. Avoid wearing scarves and badges with brand names or slogans on them. Wear business attire in and around the MP Chamber. Wear appropriate shoes instead of casual shoes. Also, wear male MP ties and jackets.

Along with this, it was also told that books or newspapers should not be read when the debate is going on in the House. MPs will not be able to bring bags, briefcases, big handbags to the chamber. The MPs have to bow before the Chair as a mark of respect to the House upon entering or exiting the Chamber. MPs will also not be able to use mobiles, other electronic devices. Can't clap.
