A few were loaded locally to the English Wikipedia by other people.
Where local versions are being used in articles, I recommend these are
swapped to Commons, to encourage articles in other languages to use
them. At some point I guess the portrait photos will be sucked into
Wikidata, which may enable auto-illustrated infoboxes... ;-)

the Parliamentary Digital Service announce and
forthcoming release of a set of portrait photographs of 620 of the 650
UK MPs. Pictures of Peers and Parliamentary staff (and hopefully the

Please help to add these to the relevant Wikidata items, along with
the categories that are currently being created, and to Wikipedias in

There are four images for each MP. I suggest that the "crop 2" format
is most suitable; and please use those with names beginning "Official
portrait of " as other, duplicate, versions are liable to be deleted.
