Procedure of the House (Proposal 9) — Motion to Resolve — 8 Nov 2011 at 17:25

Lord Roberts of Conwy was Not-Content.

Moved By The Chairman of Committees

To resolve that the House adopt the following practice in respect of appellations:
Members should address the House as a whole, and they should never use the second person when addressing other Members in debate. A Member may refer to any other Member, without specifying his or her title, as "the noble Lord", "the noble Lady", "the noble Duke", "the right reverend Bishop" or "the most reverend Archbishop". Members may also, if they so wish, use the appropriate rank-for example "the noble Earl" or "the noble Baroness"-but there is no obligation to do so. When referring to another Member by name, the correct form is "Lord W", "Lady X", "the Duke of Y", "the Bishop/Archbishop of Z". Members may also use the term "my noble friend" to refer to fellow members of a political party. When referring to a Minister of the Crown, Members may refer to "the Leader of the House", "the Minister" or "the Secretary of State", as appropriate.
