SITTINGS AND PROCEDURE

denee on the subject is scanty and imperfect, but tradition is uniform that until the end of Henry VIII's reign their usual place of sitting was the Westminster chapter-house. It was conveniently near the palace, and we may surmise that its use for this secular purpose was as much by order of the king as by permission of the abbot. The relations between palace and abbey, king and abbot, were very close, and it did not suit either to examine too minutely the authority of the other. Plantagenet kings kept their treasure in the abbey, close to the chapter-house, and exercised rights over this part of the building. And to this day the chapter-house is, as the presence of policemen indicates, under the custody, not of the dean, but of the king's chief commissioner of works.
Henry VIII disestablished and disendowed the foundation of St. Stephen's Chapel, which had been the royal chapel of the palace, and in 1547, the first year of his successor's reign, this chapel was set apart for the use of the house of commons, and continued to be its home until the fire of 1834. After the demolitions and alterations which began in 1800, the lords sat in a large hall known at various times as the White Hall and the Court of Requests, parallel to Westminster Hall, and situated where the statue of Richard Coeur de Lion now stands. At right angles to this hall, and therefore parallel to St. Stephen's Chapel, was an old building called the Painted
