Guidebooks in the Houses of Parliament are to be translated into Arabic for the first time.

The visitors' manuals are already available in Chinese, Japanese, Russian and Urdu.

Sarah Teather, Liberal Democrat MP for Brent East, who asked for the books to be printed, said: "Arabic is a major world language and there is no reason why Arabic guides should not appear.

"Parliament is here to govern for the whole country."
