Despatch Boxes in United Kingdom

Despatch boxes Meaning, as used in the UK Parliament

In the Chamber of each House there are two wooden boxes called despatch boxes. The despatch boxes are situated on either side of the Table and ministers and shadow ministers stand at the despatch boxes to speak. Despite their name, the despatch boxes are not used to contain documents or despatches but hold bibles and other items used when Members take the oath.
