In the British House of Commons there are two "despatch boxes" on the table at which the prime minister, the leader of the opposition, and other front bench ministers and shadow ministers speak.

The government-side despatch box contains "bibles and other items used when Members [of the House of Commons] take the oath". (Source: the British Parliament.) What are its exact contents?
