       All Questions fall at Prorogation. Members may send notices of Questions relating to the new Session to the Table Office by post or through the e-tabling system once the House has prorogued. These notices will be treated as having been received on the first day of the new Session.
       Members may table notices of Questions in person in the Table Office from its opening time in the new Session of 10.00 a.m. on Tuesday 6th November.
       An explanatory note on the tabling of topical Questions for oral answer will be available in the Table Office if the Motion on the First Report of the Select Committee on Modernisation of the House of Commons and the proposals set out in the Government’s response thereto is agreed to by the House.
       The last day in the Session on which Questions may be submitted for named day answer will be Thursday 25th October for answer on Tuesday 30th October (and in the case of ordinary written Questions the last day will be Friday 26th October). The earliest date in the new Session for which a Question may be set down for named day written answer is Monday 12th November.
       The last day in the Session on which effective notices of new 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.
       All Motions fall at Prorogation.
