    Alternatively, we could ban just one person (you), and a similar effect would be reached.

    I would hazard a guess that the main controversial point recently came from the socialists.

    Can I ask the Speaker if a motion to halve a ministerial salary requires just one person to propose or a number of seconders? This is the parliamentary way of expressing no congidence in an individual minister.

    It can be submitted by a single MP, though obviously if passed it will have no effect. It is not possible for the House to formally vote no confidence in an individual minister.

    Mr speaker, please can you confirm weather or not the government is calling an early election and if not as parliament expires 3 weeks yesterday when will you be publishing the election timetable?

    If we were calling an early election then you'd know when we want you to know. And if you're interested in the weather, try bbc.co.uk/weather/[yourpostcode]

    Well all you can do is make it 2 weeks earlier right now so my guess is that you aren't doing a thing if you aren't doing it now

    It's not for me to tell you if and when an early election is going to be called.

    I will announce the election timetable on the day I begin the election process, which unless an early election is called will be on 26 October.

    Parliament expires then, unless you have forgotten all about how GE's work you need to call an end to submitting at some point before too.

    The election process will begin on the 26th (if not called sooner), so Parliament will continue to vote for the week up until the start of GE voting.

    The last day for votes opening will be at some point during that week, which you will be hearing about on the 26th.

    So you are totally ignoring the rules and how it's been done in the past then?
    WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO VOTE WHEN PARLIAMENT HAS EXPIRED. at that point we all cease to be MPs because our electoral mandate has ended.

    I echo TDA's comments entirely - there is really no need to be addressing people using capital letters. I understand that you're itching to get started with the GE, but the choice of when to call the GE remains in the Government's hands for the time being; the Speaker cannot do anything at this stage.

    If it makes you feel happier, consider me invoking my Constitutional right (under 3.2) to delay the election so it begins on the 26th.

    It doesn't really because there isn't any need to do it. It has always been that a weeks wash up period starts before the dissolution of Parliament and we tend to be warned about everything a week in advance of this wash up period.

    Except that the government are basically not going to change the date because it's so late in the day.

    It still remains the Government's decision until 26th October, so at this moment in time, you're merely speculating.
