The Palace of Westminster is old - level 2
In London, the Palace of Westminster was rebuilt in the mid-1800s following a fire. Now, in the 21st century, it needs renovations. The stonework is falling apart, roofs are leaking and the plumbing is failing.
There are five possible solutions to this problem. The cheapest would cost 3.5 billion pounds, but the MPs would have to move out for six years. The most expensive solution would cost 5.7 billion pounds and take 32 years to complete.
The Commons and Lords will have to vote within the next few years on what to do to solve their potential housing problem.
Difficult words: renovation (when you work on something and make it nice again), MP (a member of parliament).
