Debate on the Address: Eden Project North (Morecambe) (17 Oct 2019)

Eleanor Laing: That was an excellent debate, totally different from and in contrast to the rest of the day, and so much better. Question put and agreed to. House adjourned.

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Eleanor Laing: I beg colleagues not to take interventions, which increases their time. If they do, the Member who is meant to speak last will not get to speak at all, which is just not fair.

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Eleanor Laing: Order. I am afraid that I have to reduce the time limit to three minutes, because otherwise it will not be possible to get everybody in.

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Eleanor Laing: Order. I do not want to make too much drama out of this, but it will be better if the hon. Gentleman rewinds 30 seconds and rephrases what he said was said to Her Majesty.

Points of Order (15 Oct 2019)

Eleanor Laing: I thank the right hon. Lady for her point of order. As I said, I allowed considerable leniency in the business statement and questioning thereafter, because I recognise that Members have genuine questions to ask. She did not really ask a question of the Chair. She made a very reasonable, genuine point of debate, which I am sure she will be able to make again and again as time goes...

Points of Order (15 Oct 2019)

Eleanor Laing: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his point of order, which was more of a point of information. I am sure that the matter will be further debated in—[Interruption.] A right hon. Member says “disinformation”. It is my job simply to facilitate the discussion as to whether a matter is information or disinformation. Members are of course entitled to their opinions, which I know they will...

Bills Presented: Prisoners (Disclosure of Information about Victims) Bill (15 Oct 2019)

Eleanor Laing: For the avoidance of doubt, I should explain that this is a matter of procedure and Standing Orders. It does not mean that these Bills will necessarily have a Second Reading debate in the House tomorrow, but it is required that they are introduced in this way. I hope to avoid points of order on this matter by giving the explanation now.

Business Statement (15 Oct 2019)

Eleanor Laing: Order. I did not hear what the hon. Gentleman said at the end of his question and I guess that lots of other people did not either. I am therefore going to ask him to repeat it and the House ought to listen to the last bit of his question.

Business Statement (15 Oct 2019)

Eleanor Laing: The right hon. Gentleman is correct to mention heckling going on. Obviously, I will not allow heckling. I did not recognise heckling there—a statement of the obvious, yes, but not quite heckling. If it gets any worse, it will be heckling and I will have to stop it.

Business Statement (15 Oct 2019)

Eleanor Laing: I should point out that this is a very narrow business statement, and technically, I should have allowed questions relating only specifically to that, but I hope that the Lord President of the Council will forgive me for having allowed slightly wider questioning. I appreciate that there is concern about a Saturday sitting and that Members had genuine questions to ask him, which he has...

Find this exact word or phrase

You can also do this from the main search box by putting exact words in quotes: like "cycling" or "hutton report"

Excluding these words

We also support a bunch of boolean search modifiers, like AND and NEAR, for precise searching.

Date range

to
