Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am
The exclusive bars, eateries and function rooms of Parliament could be opened up to the public.
Tourists could soon be offered cream teas on the famous Thames-side Terrace, and Westminster Hall could be hired out for high end private functions at £25,000 a time.
The proposals are part of a package designed to nearly halve the £5.7m annual loss made by the catering operation at Westminster.
But MPs are refusing to save £145,000 a year by giving up waiter service in their private dining room.
