||<p>An option to move Parliament out of the Palace of Westminster to a new purpose-built
building was included in the <a href="https://restorationandrenewal.parliament.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Pre-Feasibility-Study-Oct12.pdf"
target="_blank">Restoration and Renewal Pre-Feasibility Study</a> published in 2012.
The House of Lords Commission, then known as the House Committee, reviewed that study
on 30 October 2012. It decided to rule out the option of constructing a new building
away from Westminster and agreed that no further analysis would be undertaken on this
option. The House of Commons Commission had already taken a similar view. These commitments
were reaffirmed by the Joint Committee on the Palace of Westminster in 2016 and in
the resolutions of both Houses following the debates in 2018.</p>
