All notices of Questions fall at Prorogation. Questions tabled for answer on a named day after Prorogation will not be answered. Questions for ordinary written answer tabled shortly before Prorogation may not receive a substantive answer before Prorogation. They cannot be answered after Prorogation. Once Parliament has been prorogued, Members may send notices of Questions relating to the new Session to the Table Office by post or through the e-tabling system. These notices will be treated as having been received on the day of the State Opening.


Members may table notices of Questions in person in the Table Office from 9.30 am on Wednesday 9 May, the day of the State Opening.

There will be no Question Time on the first three sitting days of the new Session. Shuffles will take place at 12.30 pm on Wednesday 9 May for the oral Questions to Departments being answered on Tuesday 15 May and Wednesday 16 May; and a shuffle will be held on Thursday 10 May for oral questions to the Prime Minister on Wednesday 16 May. The rota of Departments answering oral questions from Tuesday 15 May will be set out in the Order of Questions which will be issued when the date of Prorogation is confirmed. It will be available from the Vote Office and via the Parliamentary Intranet at

The earliest date in the new Session for which a Question may be set down for named day written answer is Monday 14 May.


The last day in the Session on which effective notices of new Motions (including Early Day Motions) and added names can be submitted by Members is the day before Prorogation takes place. No new Motions may therefore be tabled on the day of Prorogation nor may any names be added to existing Motions on that day.

All Motions fall at Prorogation.

New Motions, and added names to them, may be submitted to the Table Office from Wednesday 9 May.
