The House of Commons, known to the public through the engaging displays of Question Period, is where Members of Parliament gather to discuss and debate the nation’s most critical issues. Join the 36th Speaker of the House of Commons, Geoff Regan, who gives us a tour inside the Commons Chamber.

We also meet Johanna Mizgala, curator for the House of Commons, who shares with us the fascinating story behind Centre Block, and we follow the Clerk of the House of Commons – Charles Robert, who explains the importance of parliamentary rules and traditions.
