“Why shouldn’t we have live music in the Commons? Parliament has a chance if reconnecting with the country if it shows an interest I things that matter to people across the country.
“This is the first concert of its kind here. I suspect there will be many more in the future.
“I think this is a milestone. Parliament should be proud of its traditions and ready to glory in the beauty of its architecture and of course to continue with the litany of traditional events which we enjoy, but also ready to evolve, adapt and move on.”
