London, Jan.24 (ANI): A committee of British lawmakers have said that there will be no renovation work on the Palace of Westminster that includes the famous "Big Ben" until at least 2020.
According to the BBC, the decision comes after surveyors found that Parliament's Clock Tower was leaning.
The House of Commons Commission said officials would conduct an investigation into how repairs could be carried out, but no decisions would be taken until the next Parliament.
But it stressed that the Palace remained "structurally sound".
The Clock Tower, housing the bell which is called Big Ben, was completed in 1859.
Since then a five-storey car park and the Jubilee underground line have been constructed.
In October, Professor John Burland, a construction expert from Imperial College London who oversaw the building of the car park, said the tower was leaning, but it would not be a major concern for at least 10,000 years.
Burland told the BBC on Monday the tower was "moving incredibly slowly and always has done so and there really is no immediate danger at all". (ANI)
