Certainly, it's the major privilege of parliament. I don't think they would,
though, I mean look what happened last time...
It would also put the fascinatingly-named Black Rod, whose main purpose is
to knock on the doors of the House of Commons at the State opening of
Parliament with a, well, Black Rod (while wearing a very fetching wig) out
of a job. And where would he find other work? (wanted, situation for a tall
man in outré black clothing. Strong experience in door-knocking, own tools
provided). 

Cheers
