The Westminster Hour is a British political news review, broadcast on BBC Radio 4 each Sunday evening between 22:00 and 23:00 (starting with a national and international news bulletin and concluding with the press review segment What the Papers Say). Despite the reference in its title to the Palace of Westminster – meeting-place of the Houses of the United Kingdom Parliament – the programme also deals with topics and events connected with the work of the UK's devolved legislative assemblies in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh, and London.

Presenters[edit]

The programme is currently hosted (2015) by Carolyn Quinn a former presenter of Radio 4's Today programme. It was previously hosted by the journalist Andrew Rawnsley.
