House of Lords v House of Commons Tug of War They managed to raise over £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support last year and this summer they're going at it again - the annual House of Lords vs House of Commons Tug of War is back for a 27th year. The typically English setting of Westminster College Gardens plays host to this light-hearted skirmish between these two houses of Parliament as they battle it out to raise money for the Macmillan cancer support charity. Last year it was the Commons who came out on top, retaining their victory from previous years. BBC2's Jeremy Vine often plays the role of commentator and brings a witty repertoire to the occasion.
