But under plans being put forward by Tory MP Tobias Ellwood, it would be renamed ‘Elizabeth Tower’ in honor of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, a 60 years of unbroken public service on behalf of her country.

The proposal gained the support of senior members of all parties, including leader of the House Sir George Young and former Labour foreign secretary Jack Straw.
