Standing Orders

Each Chamber has its own Standing Orders, a set of rules which sets out the procedures which much be followed. To view the Standing Orders for the respective Chambers please use the links on the left.

Procedure in each Chamber is controlled by the presiding officer in accordance with the appropriate Standing Orders. In each case the presiding officer's interpretation of the Standing Orders is authoritative.

Each Chamber has a Standing Orders Committee responsible for keeping the Standing Orders under review. Standing Orders can be amended by a resolution of the relevant Chamber, usually on a recommendation put forward by its Standing Orders Committee.
