Children’S Funeral Fund (1 May 2019)

John Bercow: I appreciate that colleagues are in a state of some animation, but I would very gently point out that the subject of the Adjournment is the children’s funeral fund. This is a matter of the utmost seriousness and sensitivity, and the track record of the hon. Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris) in relation to this subject is long established and widely respected. I am sure that...

Speaker’S Statement (1 May 2019)

British Steel: EU Emissions Trading Compliance: Points of Order (1 May 2019)

The fact that no ministerial oral statement has been proffered does not mean that the possibility of an oral exchange on the...

Climate Change (Net Zero Uk Carbon Account) (30 Apr 2019)

John Bercow: Order. It is very discourteous for Members to witter away from a sedentary position when another point of view is being expressed. The hon. Gentleman might not wish to test the will of the House, but if he wished to do so he would be at liberty so to do. He is entitled to make his speech and to be treated with courtesy by everybody, so those who are not behaving with courtesy ought to...

Point of Order (30 Apr 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. I have received no indication from the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions of an intention to come to the House to say anything about this matter. It is, of course, incumbent on each and every Member to take responsibility for words spoken in the Chamber—that is...
