    This is the suit Margaret Thatcher was wearing when unveiling her bronze portrait bust, which now sits in the House of Commons lobby.

    She is also seen wearing it in 'Val Meets the VIPS', BBC1, Children's Television, from 1973, in which school children ask her questions about her life and work as Education Minister.
