Who Can Drink in Parliament?

Put that snifter away! You’re not allowed to sip on whisky while sitting in the House of Commons. No one is—except for one person. It’s the Chancellor of the Exchequer and for a good reason.

Marcus Ethridge and Howard Handelman write in Politics in a Changing World that the Chancellor of the Exchequer is permitted a single drink when delivering the annual Budget Statement. I’m sure that he needs it.
