Environmental Audit Committee (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: Except for that gracious tribute from the Minister, such has been the force, incisiveness and comprehensive scope of the statement by the hon. Member for Wakefield (Mary Creagh) that she has left the House speechless. I trust that the appropriate extract from the Official Report will be put up on the wall of one of the rooms in her home.

Work and Pensions Committee (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: We now come to the second Select Committee statement. The procedure is the same as for the previous statement.

State Pension Age (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: Order. I remind the House of the substantial business to follow, which is heavily subscribed. There is therefore a premium upon brevity, from Back and Front Benches alike—minimum preliminary comments; simply a focus on the question to the Minister.

Environmental Audit Committee (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: The hon. Member for Wakefield (Mary Creagh), the Chair of the Environmental Audit Committee, will speak on the subject for up to 10 minutes, during which no interventions may be taken. At the conclusion of the statement, I will call Members to put questions on the subject of the statement and call the hon. Lady to respond to them in turn. Members can expect to be called only once....

Acute and Community Health (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: Order. I remind the House that there is another ministerial statement to follow, and that although the debate on matters to be raised before the forthcoming Adjournment is not now intended to take place, no fewer than 19 Members wish to take part in the debate on community banking, so there is a premium on brevity. These important matters having been preliminarily aired, I now appeal to...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: As the hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) knows, I deal with the manifestations of disorder at Prime Minister’s questions and on other occasions to the best of my ability. However, in noting what he has said, I can tell the House that I have raised the concern he has articulated with successive Chief Whips on both sides of the House. To say that the response has not been receptive...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: No. This is just a matter of putting on the record what is a matter of fact. As I say around the country, behaviour at Prime Minister’s questions will change when the Whips on each side want it to change. It is as simple and incontrovertible as that. If they want it to change and they say it must change, it will; if they do not, it will not. I can deal with the manifestations: I do,...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: Thank you. The next statement comes as a result of, and in response to, the exceptionally brave, persistent and unstinting pressure brought by the hon. Member for West Lancashire (Rosie Cooper). That point is known to many, but has just been acknowledged to me in the most glowing terms by the Minister of State at the Department of Health and Social Care. Therefore, when we come to questions,...

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: Order. As usual, a great many Members are seeking to catch my eye, and I shall do my best to accommodate their interest. However, I must remind the House that there are no fewer than three Government statements and two Select Committee statements to follow these exchanges, before we even reach the debate that is due to take place under the auspices of the Backbench Business Committee and the...

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: Order. The hon. Member for Gedling (Vernon Coaker) is no doubt having a most illuminating private conversation, but it must not be to the detriment of a pertinent inquiry from the hon. Member for Angus (Kirstene Hair); the hon. Gentleman can always witter away outside the Chamber if he is so inclined.

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: No cage, no chickens—at any rate in the Chamber.

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: Having heard the hon. Member for Gedling (Vernon Coaker) chuntering from his seat, let us hear him on his feet.

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: We have made timely progress, so if the hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire North (Gavin Newlands) wants to come in, he can, briefly.

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: The hon. Gentleman has made his point with force and alacrity. I hope that he is content.

Same-Sex Marriage in Bermuda (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: Order. May I say that the Minister is perfectly welcome to go into the detail of those conversations about which the hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) had inquired? There is certainly no prohibition from the Chair.

Royal Assent: Motability (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: Order. I granted this urgent question because I thought that it was urgent, and it is, and it is an extremely important matter, but the House will be conscious that we have very, very heavy constraints on time today, so I am looking to those on the Opposition Front Bench to stick to their time, because after that they will be cut off. I appeal to colleagues for short questions, please, and I...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Leaving the EU: Film Industry Funding (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: A Cook’s tour of the United Kingdom awaits the Minister. I am sure that she looks forward to it with eager anticipation and, I hope, bated breath.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Museums (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: I join in congratulating the hon. Lady and say to her: engagement, birthday and a tribute from the hon. Gentleman on the Treasury Bench—her cup runneth over! It does not get any better than this.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Channel 4: Relocation (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: But not in too much detail.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (8 Feb 2018)

John Bercow: Order. Today Front-Bench Members will have to be particularly brief as there is heavy pressure on time and I am trying to accommodate a lot of colleagues.
