Carol Handcock : BBC Parliament hasn't gone anywhere, it is still on Freeview as it always has been. There has been no announcement of any changes taking place regarding BBC Parliament next week.

Carol Handcock :

BBC Parliament could have disappeared from the listings if the publisher has made room for Sky Arts which is coming to Freeview (next week IIRC).

If you are not getting the channel at LCN232 in your EPG, you might be missing other BBC channels and your set's memory may need clearing so do a retune with the aerial unplugged and then repeat it with the aerial plugged back in.
