Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: RAF Bases (14 Dec 2010)

John Bercow: I have listened carefully to what the hon. Gentleman said, and I have to give my decision without stating any reasons.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Courts Service Estate (14 Dec 2010)

John Bercow: Order. I trust that the shadow Minister is in his final sentence. He has taken almost as long responding to the statement as the statement itself took. Members must realise that this is not a debate. A response to a statement is a brief response and a series of questions. I hope that that is now clear for the future, because sight has been lost of it, and must be regained at once.

John Bercow: Order. Many right hon. and hon. Members are seeking to catch my eye.

Petition — Bus Service (Walsall) (9 Dec 2010)

John Bercow: Order. Before the hon. Lady presents her petition, as usual in these circumstances I appeal to hon. and right hon. Members who are leaving the Chamber to do so quickly and quietly, affording the same courtesy to the hon. Lady that they would wish to be extended to themselves in her situation.

Members for Rochford and Southend East (James Duddridge) and for Stalybridge and Hyde (Jonathan Reynolds). The number of Aye votes was erroneously reported as 320, instead of 310.

Business of the House (Thursday) (8 Dec 2010)

John Bercow: Order. First, that intervention was too long and, secondly, the issue is not how much time visitors to the House have to raise matters with Members who might or might not be taking part in a debate; the issue is the allocation of time for Members of Parliament to debate the issues.

Points of Order (8 Dec 2010)

John Bercow: I fear that the hon. Gentleman overestimates my influence, although I am grateful to him for doing so.

Gentleman, that he will return to this matter, and more than once.
