Under the Guidance Document, MPs are requested to begin the term by making the oath of allegiance or the solemn affirmation.

The text of the oath is:
I (name of Member) swear by Almighty God that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors, according to law. So help me God.

The text of the affirmation is:
I (name of Member) do solemnly, sincerely, and truly declare and affirm, that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors, according to law.

There is also the option to take the oath in the Scottish manner, or to swear in Welsh, Cornish, or Scottish Gaelic alongside English. Information regarding this can be found here.

All MP usergroup requests have been accepted where submitted, and I will not be considering a failure to swear the oath as disqualifying any member from undertaking the duties of an MP.

According to tradition, the Father of the House, Life_peer MP, is the first to take the oath or affirmation.

Don't panic, daddy is awake now. *scoffs and glares at the three impertinent youngsters above*

I Life_peer swear by Almighty God that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors, according to law, within the model realm of TSR, if they don't go mental and engage in warmongering. So help me God.

I, The Mogg do solemnly, sincerely, and truly declare and affirm, that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors, according to law.

Yr wyf yn addo, trwy gymorth y Goruchaf, y byddaf yn ffyddlon ac yn wir deyrngar i’w Mawrhydi, y Frenhines Elizabeth, ei hetifeddion a’i holynwyr, yn ôl y Ddeddf, yn wyneb Duw.

I JMR2019. swear by Almighty God that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors, according to law. So help me God.

Rwy'n JMR2019 yn rhegi gan Hollalluog Dduw y byddaf yn ffyddlon ac yn rhoi gwir deyrngarwch i'w Mawrhydi y Frenhines Elizabeth, ei hetifeddion a'i holynwyr, yn ôl y gyfraith. Felly helpa fi Dduw.

Ja, JMR2019, przysięgam Wszechmogącego Boga, że ​​będę wierny i oddam prawdę Jej Wysokości Królowej Elżbiecie, jej spadkobiercom i następcom prawnym. Tak mi dopomóż Bóg.

मैं, JMR2019 सर्वशक्तिम
