    Spot the difference: America’s House of Representatives on Capitol Hill


Dear Sir,

Just switched on the Budget presentation on Channel 3 and what did I see? “Live House of Representatives”.

One of your correspondents noted a couple of days ago that one of the TV stations referred to the House of Assembly as the House of Representatives.

Has the Government changed the name of the Lower House?
