Hybrid Proceedings

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

Members are now required to choose their mode of participation - physical or remote - when adding their name to a speakers’ list. In line with the Procedure and Privileges Committee Guidance, members will not be able to change their mode of participation once a list has closed. If members send speaking requests by email and do not specify a mode of participation it will be assumed that they intend to take part remotely. 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 and Privileges Committee Guidance on hybrid proceedings can be found here.

Notes:

  • This document sets out the matters for the day’s business which the Government Whips’ Office coordinates: Speakers’ Lists (Companion 4.26), ministerial statements (Companion 6.02) and the grouping of amendments (Companion 8.70).
  • Time estimates are best endeavours: there is no certainty other than for formally time-limited business. It is the duty of individual members to observe the rules on attendance at debate (Companion 4.32) and, in particular, to ensure that they are present for the start of business in which they wish to take part.
  • The number of sessions shown for a stage of a bill represents the Government’s assessment of reasonable time given the balance of bills and remaining days to the likely end of the session. Progress remains in the hands of the House. Report stage is usually half the length of Committee.
  • The grouping of amendments is informal. Although every effort is made to secure agreement to groupings, any peer may speak to an amendment in its place on the Marshalled List. “g” before an amendment indicates a Government amendment.
  • Speaking in debates (Companion 4.34): A member of the House who is taking part in a debate (including general debates and debates on amendments or motions) should attend the start, end and greater part of that debate. In addition, it is considered discourteous for members not to be present for at least the opening speeches, the speeches before and after their own, ad for the winding-up speeches.  Ministers may decide not to answer, orally or in writing, points made by a speaker who does not stay to hear the Minister's closing speech. Members who believe that they are unlikely to be able to stay until the end of a debate should not seek to participate in it (and if the debate has a speakers' list, should remove their names from the list).
