House of Lords: Dress Code
House of Lords
Lord Sewel (Labour)
The dress code for these outlets, as set out in the handbook on facilities and services for Members, is as follows:
"In the Peers' Dining and Guest Dining Rooms, the Guest Room and the Barry Room, men are required to wear a jacket and tie. Women and children should be appropriately dressed".
Managers within each outlet do advise Members of the code, but adherence to the code is a matter for Members themselves. I intend to put this matter before the Refreshment Committee in due course, so that they may consider the appropriateness of the rules.
