Big Ben Bong for Brexit

Thank you for contacting me about the chiming of Big Ben when the UK leaves the EU on 31 January.

Big Ben chimes at moments of national celebration including on Remembrance Sunday and on New Year’s Eve. I understand that a number of MPs have tabled an Early Day Motion requesting that Big Ben chime on 31 January but a decision on this is a matter for the House of Commons authorities rather than for Government. 

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
