Ealing Central and Acton MP Rupa Huq has given an insight into life in Parliament more than one year after being elected - and has revealed an unusual detail about life in Parliament involving exclusive toilets.
Labour MP Dr Huq was elected in May 2015 after winning her seat with 43.2% of the vote, having lived in the area for more than 40 years.
Now in a parliamentary interview , Dr Huq has opened up on life as an MP as well as talking about Only Fools and Horses, the Brit Awards and the "unhealthy Westminster bubble."
One of the most interesting answers she gave during the interview popped up when she was asked to "tell us something we don't know about Parliament."
She said: "Ok, one thing you probably don’t know about Parliament is that there are three ladies rooms that are dotted around. At least three, there may be more I haven’t discovered.
"They’re Lady Members’ rooms so you can only go in there if you’re a woman MP and they have a little sofa, a TV where you can get what’s going on in the Chamber, a phone and an intercommunicating door to a loo, one of them has a shower.
"There’s another intercommunicating door with a bed in it so if it all gets too much you can have a lie down.
"The other day I was in one of those rooms making some phone calls after I’d been in the Chamber, because my office is quite far from the Chamber, and I heard this strange noise.
"It was someone snoring who really was having a kip.
"I didn’t find out who they were because I think the bell was ringing and we had a vote."
