European Council: Points of Order (24 Jun 2019)

John Bercow: I have certainly received no indication of any intention on the part of a Government Minister to make an oral statement in this Chamber. However, the consequence of the hon. Lady raising this point of order is that the Treasury Bench has been alerted to her concern. I would very much hope, in the spirit of courtesy, that the Government would give her advance notice of their intention to make...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [Lords] (24 Jun 2019)

Speaker’S Statement (24 Jun 2019)

The recall petition process for the constituency of Brecon and Radnorshire, established under the Recall of MPs Act 2015, closed on Thursday last at 5 pm.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: National Funding Formula (24 Jun 2019)

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (24 Jun 2019)

John Bercow: Order. If the hon. Gentleman were to conduct himself in that manner in a breakfast club, he would be in danger of permanent exclusion. It would be a very unseemly state of affairs, and I would not wish it on him or, indeed, on his fellow attendees.

Business of the House (20 Jun 2019)

John Bercow: Well, what a beautiful reply from the Treasury Bench. I must say to the right hon. Member for South Holland and The Deepings (Sir John Hayes) that I have just received his most gracious, handwritten, borderline poetic letter in his illustrious capacity as chair of the all-party parliamentary group for Lebanon, and I intend to reply by hand—although probably not, as he would prefer, by the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Rare and Native Breeds (20 Jun 2019)

John Bercow: This is all very encouraging, but I must say that as we are discussing rare breeds, I feel a great sense of personal sadness that we are not joined this morning by the right hon. Member for Mid Sussex (Sir Nicholas Soames), who knows a thing or two about these matters.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Clean Air Strategy (20 Jun 2019)

John Bercow: The hon. Member for Aberdeen South (Ross Thomson) has withdrawn his question, so I call Mr David Duguid.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (20 Jun 2019)

John Bercow: Order. Before we turn to the next session of oral questions, I must advise the House that the urgent question I had granted to the hon. Member for Stone (Sir William Cash) has now been withdrawn by the hon. Gentleman, so we will proceed from Question Time to the business question, and then to the two ministerial statements that are scheduled to follow it. That is really for the benefit of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Serious Youth Violence (20 Jun 2019)

John Bercow: As the hon. Member for Kettering (Mr Hollobone) is a member of Kettering Borough Council and also a special constable, my only surprise is that he does not serve as a street pastor, but that may be only a matter of time.

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Cathedrals: Contribution to Local Economies (20 Jun 2019)

Breathing Space Scheme (19 Jun 2019)

John Bercow: Order. Unless I am much mistaken, the hon. Member for Harborough (Neil O'Brien) is in danger of being rather a naughty man. I am advised that he beetled into the Chamber halfway through the response from the Opposition Front-Bench spokesman—[Interruption.] I was advised that he came through the double doors. I do not know whether he toddled out for some reason and then came back. If he is...

Point of Order (19 Jun 2019)

John Bercow: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his point of order. I am always appreciative of kind words and, in so far as he is proffering sympathy for me and expressing concern about my reputation, I am deeply obliged to him, but I am not a delicate flower and I do not feel any concern on that front. I am simply trying to do the right thing by the House. There was originally, as colleagues of...
