Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: In rounding off these proceedings, before we move to the Adjournment, perhaps I can thank warmly and from the bottom of my heart the hon. Member for Croydon Central (Sarah Jones) for securing the debate, for what she said in opening it and for the manner in which she did so. I think I speak for everybody in thanking all participants in the debate, both those who made speeches and those who...

Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: Just before I call the shadow Minister, I would like to emphasise that I would like the hon. Member for Croydon Central (Sarah Jones) to be able to briefly wind up the debate no later than 4.57 pm. Members can do the arithmetic for themselves.

Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: Order. It may have to be reduced, but we will start with a limit on Back-Bench speeches of six minutes each. I call George Freeman.

Surgical Mesh (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: I thank the hon. Lady and everybody who has joined us today. I hope that they have felt uplifted by the debate. We now come, colleagues, to the Back-Bench motion on cancer treatment. [Interruption.] Apparently, before we move on I should put the question on the debate on surgical mesh. I thank the specialist Clerk for his help and for rescuing me. We will now be entirely orderly. Question put...

Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: Just before I ask the hon. Member for Croydon Central (Sarah Jones) to open the debate, it is my honour, privilege and joy to welcome Baroness Jowell—Tessa Jowell—together with David, Matthew, Jess and others to the Under-Gallery, in what will be an extremely powerful and, I hope, constructive debate. Can I say to you, Tessa—and I say it on behalf, I am sure, of all...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: I should just say to the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr Bone), and for the benefit of other Members, without in any way dissenting from anything that the Leader has just said, that it is perfectly open to the House to amend Standing Order No. 24, of which there is some uncertainty and often incomprehension. It could be amended to allow for the tabling of substantive motions in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: Pursuant to the hon. Gentleman’s inquiry and to what the Leader of the House has said, I believe I am right in saying that there is to be a commemorative service at St Martin-in-the-Fields next Monday to mark the 25th anniversary of that appalling murder. I think I am also right in saying that our admirable Chaplain, Rev. Rose Hudson-Wilkin, will be preaching at the service. I hope...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Points of Order (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: The Secretary of State is now poised, like a panther ready to pounce, so the hon. Gentleman may have secured, if not pre-empted, at any rate, early gratification, in that the Secretary of State is marching towards the Dispatch Box.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Points of Order (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: What I would say to the shadow Secretary of State is that he has made his point with force and alacrity, it is on the record, and the Secretary of State has responded in a similar vein. This dispute—it is a genuine dispute about what the facts are—can and doubtless will continue, but by means other than the point of order procedure. I hope that honour is served.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Points of Order (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: Just as I am about to proceed to the next business, I see leaping to his feet, with his characteristic energy and suppleness, the young representative from Stone, Sir William Cash.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Points of Order (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his point of order, which I treat extremely seriously. I do so partly because of the content and partly in deference to his renowned parliamentarianism. The short answer is that there could be such a case. The particulars would have to be studied and it would be imprudent, and therefore inappropriate, for me to seek to venture a judgment here and now....

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Fares (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: I think we will take that as a no.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Freight (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: It is very good indeed to see the hon. Member for Sheffield South East (Mr Betts) back in his place.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Great Western Main Line: Electrification (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: As the hon. Gentleman will know on the strength of his nearly 39 years of experience in the House, the effect of a point of order during exchanges on a question is to cause all further exchanges on it immediately to cease. Fortunately for the hon. Gentleman, he does not risk becoming hugely unpopular as a result of his attempted point of order, for the simple reason that no one else was...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Reform (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: Order. I know the whole House will want to join me in congratulating the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill) on his engagement to Ann-Louise Whittaker, and may I say to the hon. Gentleman that, notwithstanding the fact that he is a very young man to be planning to rush into matrimony, we all wish him and Ann-Louise a very happy wedding on Friday 27 July?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Sleeper Services: Scotland to England (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: That sounds like a very agreeable adventure to me. I must obviously add it to my bucket list.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Channel Fixed Link (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: Well, I would call the hon. Member for Bassetlaw (John Mann) if he were here, but he isn’t, so I won’t.
