Here's a selection of photographs from Birmingham Day at the House Of Commons this week.
The event was held in the Jubilee Room at Westminster as a showcase of Birmingham manufacturing.
The aim was to inform Government decision-makers about Birmingham and the West Midlands' contribution to the nation – and to argue that the city and the region could do even more with the right backing.
Birmingham photographer Jas Sansi was at the event and here is a selection of his pictures.
His Flickr page has more images from the occasion.
