HC Deb 01 November 1951 vol 493 cc25-42

The House met at Half past Two o' Clock, and Mr. SPEAKER-ELECT (the Right Hon. WILLIAM SHEPHERD MORRISON) having taken the Chair,

Message to attend the Lords Commissioners by the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod.

The House went, and having returned,

Mr. Speaker

I have to report that the House has been in the House of Peers, where His Majesty was pleased by His Majesty's Commissioners to approve of the choice the House has made of myself for the office of your Speaker, and that I have, in your name, and on your behalf, made claim, by humble petition to His Majesty, to all your ancient and undoubted rights and privileges, particularly to freedom of speech in debate, freedom from arrest, freedom of access to His Majesty whenever occasion may require, and that the most favourable construction may be placed upon all your proceedings. All these His Majesty, by his Commissioners, has been pleased to allow and confirm to us in as ample a manner as they have ever been granted or confirmed by himself or by any of his Royal predecessors.

My first duty to the House is to repeat my very respectful acknowledgments and my grateful thanks for the great honour which you have conferred upon me in placing me in this Chair.

I must now call upon hon. Members, according to the usual custom, to take the Oath of Allegiance at the Table of the House, first doing so myself.

Thereupon Mr. SPEAKER first, alone, standing upon the upper step of the Chair, took and subscribed the Oath.

Mr. Speaker

I shall first call upon the Members of the two Front Benches to take the Oath, Members on the Government Bench first, and Members on the Opposition Front Bench second. After that, I shall call upon Privy Councillors and ex-Ministers; and then I shall call upon other Members, bench by bench, first from one side of the House and then from the other.

I shall try this year the experiment of indicating at the very outset the order in which I shall call Members. It occurs to me that that procedure, though it must favour some more than others, will at least give to hon. Members knowledge of how long they may expect to wait, and thus enable them to be employed more usefully than sitting in the Chamber.

After the two Front Benches, I shall call the Front Bench on my right below the Gangway and, after that, the Front Bench on my left below the Gangway; then the second bench on my right, and then the second bench on my left, and so on.

The following Members took and subscribed the Oath, or made and subscribed the Affirmation required by Law:
