The Houses of Parliament's bars have been exempted from the UK's 10pm coronavirus curfew

Boris Johnson announced earlier this month that all bars and restaurants in England would have to close their doors at 10pm in a bid to halt the current second wave of infections spreading across the country.

However, these rules do not apply to pubs, bars and restaurants inside the confines of the Houses of Parliament, the Times of London reported on Monday.

Other rules compelling drinkers to register their contact details upon entering bars as well as wearing masks when not sitting at a table also do not apply, the paper reported.

Parliamentary authorities have used an exemption in the rules allowing "workplace canteens" to sidestep the restrictions.
