Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Order. There were points of order earlier in our proceedings about conduct that was very intimidating for Members and, in some cases, Members’ families. I know that there are inflamed passions, but I just ask Members to consider this: the hon. Lady is trying to deliver a speech and doing so with her customary eloquence and fluency; she should not be shouted down and she will not be—stop it.

Points of Order (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. I am sorry that one or two people, in response to the hon. Gentleman rising, yelled, “Yawn.” I wonder whether people observing our proceedings think that that is a proper way for one colleague to show respect for another. It is not a matter of “yawn”—it is a matter of serious issues being raised, and responsibility being incumbent on the Chair in...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill: The Parliamentary Works Sponsor Body (9 Sep 2019)

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Order. There is quite a lot of noisy chuntering from a sedentary position. The hon. Member for Mid Bedfordshire (Ms Dorries) is quite beside herself in an extraordinarily irate condition, which I feel sure will not endure for very long. I was trying to explain to our French counterparts at the weekend the significance of the term “chuntering from a sedentary position”. They were...

Prorogation (Disclosure of Communications) (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Order. There is so much noise that it would be understandable if the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster were unable to hear the right hon. and learned Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve), who was bidding to intervene. Whether he accepts the intervention a matter for him, but it is important that attempted interventions are audible.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: The right hon. Gentleman asks for leave to propose a debate on a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration: the welcome completion of all parliamentary stages of the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill—sometimes colloquially known, probably in the pubs and clubs of the United Kingdom, as the Benn-Letwin Bill—and has considered the matter of the importance of...

Prorogation (Disclosure of Communications) (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: The right hon. and learned Gentleman asks me to propose a debate on a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration under the terms of Standing Order No. 24, namely the matter of prorogation with the imminence of an exit from the European Union. I have received the right hon. and learned Gentleman’s written application. I have listened carefully to what he has said on...

Points of Order (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Thank you. I just say to the right hon. Gentleman, the Leader of the Opposition, that he is very much more experienced and senior than I, but I think that as Back Benchers in our respective parties we did have quite a lot in common. Certainly, speaking for myself, as a Back Bencher, and frequently as an Opposition Front Bencher, I found that I had a relationship with my Whips characterised by...

Speaker’S Statement (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Colleagues, I would like to make a personal statement to the House. At the 2017 election, I promised my wife and children that it would be my last. This is a pledge that I intend to keep. If the House votes tonight for an early general election, my tenure as Speaker and MP will end when this Parliament ends. If the House does not so vote, I have concluded that the least disruptive and most...

Message to Attend the Lords Commissioners (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Black Rod, I treat you and what you have to say with respect, and I recognise that our presence is desired by Her Majesty the Queen’s Commissioners. They are doing what they believe to be right, and I recognise my role in this matter. [Interruption.] Wait a minute. I could not care less whether you like it or not. [Interruption.] No, I am more than happy if people have the basics of...

For greater accuracy, I have obtained a copy and also directed that the terms of the Speech be printed in the Journal of this House. Copies are being made available in...

Prorogation (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: The Commission was also for proroguing this present Parliament, and the Lord President said: “My Lords and Members of the House of Commons: By virtue of Her Majesty’s Commission which has now been read, we do, in Her Majesty’s name, and in obedience to Her Majesty’s Commands, prorogue this Parliament to Monday the fourteenth day of this October to be then here holden, and this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Further and Higher Education: Quality and Choice (9 Sep 2019)

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: I am sure that if I did not call a retired headteacher, I would be subject to the most condign punishment imaginable. I call Thelma Walker.

Point of Order (5 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for her point of order, and for her courtesy in giving me notice of her intention to raise it. Ministers are, of course, responsible for the accuracy of their answers in the House, and I am sure that the points made by the hon. Lady will have been noted on the Treasury Bench. It is open to the Secretary of State to correct the record if she thinks that that is...
