As far as I’m aware, the House of Commons chamber is symmetrical, which begs the question - what happens if the Government wins, say, a majority of 220; as one of the most recent (and optimistic) polls predicted? That would leave the opposition parties with just 215 seats - leaving the benches on their side of the chamber fairly sparse - and the Government with 435 (not counting speakers, Sinn Fein, etc.).
What happens to the seating arrangements when parliaments are this imbalanced? Do the Government just try and cram in as many MPs as possible onto their benches? Do they take over part of the opposition benches? Or do they simply handle it on a ‘first come first served’ basis - with members turning up at the crack of dawn to reserve their seats? How many MPs can fit on one side of the chamber?
