In March 2012, Her Majesty the Queen will visit Parliament to receive Addresses from both Houses in Westminster Hall. At this event, it is planned that a stained glass window bearing the Queen's Coat of Arms will be presented to Her Majesty the Queen as a gift from Members of both Houses of Parliament. The window will later be installed in the central panels of the middle tier of the north window of Westminster Hall. Yesterday, letters containing details of the proposed gift were sent from Mr Speaker and the Lord Speaker to Members of both Houses, inviting Members to make contributions towards the gift. Black Rod is currently in discussions with Buckingham Palace about the arrangements for this event and other Diamond Jubilee events which might involve the Houses of Parliament.
