Virtual and Hybrid Proceedings
 

Most types of business now have speakers' lists. Members who are on a speakers’ list to take part in a virtual proceeding or to take part in a hybrid proceeding remotely will be contacted directly with the link to join that proceeding. 

In light of the current public health advice and the limited capacity in the Chamber, it will be assumed that Members will take part in hybrid proceedings remotely unless they indicate otherwise. If, after signing up to speak, Members wish to take part in a proceeding from the Chamber, they should email holgovernmentwhips@parliament.uk copying in their own Whips’/Convenor’s office. This must still be in advance of the speakers' list closing for that item of business. If there are more Members wishing to take part physically than there are spaces in the Chamber it will be for each individual party/group to determine which of their Members make the final speakers' list.

Speakers' lists for debates can be found here. Speakers' lists for oral questions, statements, PNQs and UQs can be found here. You can also click on the relevant section of the menu bar towards the top of this page.

The full Procedure Committee Guidance on virtual proceedings can be found here.

The closing times of speakers' lists for differing kinds of business are shown below:

Oral questions
Members now need to sign up in advance to ask a supplementary oral question. Each member can sign up for only one supplementary question each sitting day. Speakers' lists will close at 6pm two working days before the question is being asked.

Statements and PNQs
Members now need to sign up in advance to ask a question after an oral statement has been repeated and to ask a supplementary question after a PNQ has been answered. Speakers' lists for statement repeats and PNQs will close at 4pm the day before they take place.

To view ordered speakers' lists (when they are ready) please go to the Today's List(s) page.
