This is one of the entrances heading from the Commons foyer into the space between here and the House of Commons.
Tours go into that space, where you can get views into the House itself. Like the British Parliament, our House of Commons takes green as its decorative motif. The government party sits on the left here, with the opposition parties on the right.
The Speaker of the House sits at the far end, overseeing what can often get argumentative. Public galleries are above the Commons. The Prime Minister sits with his party in the front row, about two thirds of the way down from here. Proceedings are done in English and French, with translators at work transmitting to those MPs who aren't bilingual, something that repeats itself in the Senate.
The tour moved off from here, heading down the Hall Of Honour towards the Library of Parliament. I took opportunities to photograph the particular details as I walked along.
