Arms Export Licences (Saudi Arabia) (26 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Order. It might be helpful to colleagues if I indicate that, while wishing to accommodate the legitimate and not inconsiderable interest in this urgent question, I want also to move on to the next urgent question at or close to midday. There is, therefore, a premium on brevity from Back and Front Benchers alike.

Hong Kong (26 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Such illustrious colleagues! It is very hard to choose—wow. Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown.

Compliance with the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (26 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Order. Can I very gently say to the hon. Gentleman that he must rattle through the remainder of the questions very quickly, without drama? Very quickly—please.

Speaker's Statement (26 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Before we get under way with today’s business, including a number of urgent questions and statements, I just want to say a few words to the House. I think there is a widespread sense across the House and beyond that, yesterday, the House did itself no credit. There was an atmosphere in the Chamber worse than any I have known in my 22 years in the House. On both sides, passions were...

Business of the House (25 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Order. Before I ask the Leader of the House to respond, I should like to emphasise, because it has been a long day, although we are, arguably, just getting going, that this is a narrow business statement. I do not use the term “narrow” in any pejorative sense; it is narrow in the sense that it is tightly focused on the proposed business for tomorrow. I certainly would not have dreamed of...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Order. I said that the Prime Minister should not be shouted down. The same goes for the Leader of the Opposition. Let me say to people bellowing from a sedentary position: stop it—you will exhaust your vocal cords, you will get nowhere, it will not work, and these proceedings will continue for as long as is necessary for the Chair to be satisfied that proper scrutiny has taken place. It is...

Iran (25 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: With such a glittering array of parliamentary celebrities on both sides, it is difficult to know whom to choose, but I think that I must call not just a Member, I say for the benefit of observers, but a president—the president of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, Madeleine Moon.

Brexit Readiness: Operation Yellowhammer (25 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: The right hon. Gentleman should plough on.

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: We cannot take points of order during a statement. Points of order will flow after either this statement or other statements at the discretion of the Chair.

Hacker House (25 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Order. I am extremely grateful to the hon. Lady, but she has exceeded her time by 50% already, so that’s the end of that I’m afraid.

Legal Advice: Prorogation (25 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Order. If the Attorney General could resume his seat momentarily, I should be deeply obliged to him. The Attorney General has a distinctive and resonant baritone, which is well known throughout the House, but it is a challenge even for him to be fully heard if there is constant catcalling. There will be ample opportunity for colleagues to question and probe the Attorney General—of that they...

Speaker’S Statement (25 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: Colleagues, welcome back to our place of work. The UK Supreme Court ruled yesterday that “Parliament has not been prorogued” and that the Speaker of the House of Commons and the Lord Speaker “can take immediate steps to enable each House to meet as soon as possible” to decide upon a way forward. I will arrange for the citation for that judgment to be entered in the Journal of this...

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...
