Statement from the parliamentary authorities about today's attack at Westminister
Mr Speaker and the Lord Speaker have made a statement following the terrorist attack in Westminster this afternoon.
My thoughts, and I am sure those of almost everyone in Britain at this time, are with the family of the police officer who died in the line of duty defending parliament, and with the families of the other innocent victims who have died, and with the injured victims and their families.
