FILE - In this Tuesday, April 17, 2018 file photo, scaffolding surrounds the Queen Elizabeth Tower, which holds the bell known as Big Ben, in London. The bell of Britain’s Parliament has been largely silent since 2017 while its iconic clock tower undergoes four years of repairs. Brexit-backing lawmakers are campaigning for it to strike at the moment Britain leaves the European Union -- 11 p.m. (2300GMT) on Jan. 31. Parliamentary officials say it is not worth the cost, which could come to 500,000 pounds ($650,000). The House of Commons Commission said Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2020 that because the clock mechanism has been dismantled and the belfry is currently getting a new floor, arranging for the bell to ring “could result in huge costs to the public purse.” (AP Photo/Alastair Grant, file)
