The relocation of the House of Representatives to its temporary accommodation elsewhere in The Hague city centre has been completed. The first day of sittings took place at 67 Bezuidenhoutseweg on 7 September. In this bulletin you can find updates, photos and more information about the relocation and the temporary accommodation.
MPs, parliamentary group staff, civil servants and the press have waved goodbye to the Binnenhof for the time being. The complex of buildings at the Binnenhof will undergo a thorough renovation in the coming years. The other occupants of the Binnenhof (the Senate, the Council of State and the Ministry of General Affairs) have also found alternative accommodation for the duration of the renovation. The House of Representatives is moving to B67, as the temporary parliament building is known to insiders. The B stands for Bezuidenhoutseweg, 67 is the house number. The Plenary Hall and other familiar elements of the building at the Binnenhof have been recreated in B67. The parliamentarians and staff will be using the temporary accommodation for about 5.5 years.
