Flag use in the House of Lords

In a documentary about the House of Lords. Admiral Lord West, who is evidently a vexillologist, explained that he had persuaded the Parliamentary authorities to hoist the Union Flag there all the time and not just when Parliament was actually sitting. He continued that his next goal was to erect four more flagpoles, for the flags of England, Scotland and Wales; with the fourth unoccupied for the moment, there being no official flag for Northern Ireland. He hopes that the sight of this bare flagpole will encourage the N.I. politicians to agree on one. This interview however would have been filmed before the present political crisis.
