The House of Commons will be known as the ‘Craftsfisher House’ and its main occupant will be a British craftsman named Richard Craftsman, it has been announced.
The name was first suggested by the British government, which said it hoped the new address would be “an enduring symbol of the country’s great craftsmanship”.
House of Commons is the official address for the UK Parliament, and the House of Lords.
It has been used since 1711 for the chamber, the Lords chamber, and is used by the Queen and Prince Philip.
It will be called Craftsfisher, the House Speaker, the Speaker of the House, and also the Secretary of State for Defence.
The current residence of the Speaker is the House in Westminster, and it was designed by Edward II in 1760, with the new House of the Commons designed by Charles II in 1685.
The House was designed to look like a house, and houses had been built before, but the new design would be one of the first times a new building has been named after a person, according to the new name.
The new address is expected to become official next year.
In January 2020, the UK government unveiled plans to change the way the UK House of Assembly was named.
There was no immediate response from the Commons, but an online petition calling for the name change gained more than 2,500 signatures.
A Commons spokesman said: “The House of Parliament has been known as ‘Craftscrew House’ since 1761, and its name is one that is very familiar to people from all over the world.”
It was first proposed by the Government in January 2020 as a name for the new building in the UK.
“As the name of the new home, we are delighted to have been selected as the first name for a building to be known after a House of Common Member, and we are proud to have the support of the public to help us to build this new building.”
It is unclear whether the new house will be officially named Craftscrew, or whether it will simply be known by the new “Craftsfishing House” moniker.
On the issue of new addresses, there are a number of options that have been floated in recent months, including the option of changing the House to a new address, the naming of a new site, or changing the address itself.
House Commons will also be the third new address in the world, after the US Capitol in Washington and the Queen’s House in Buckingham Palace.
More to come.
