The Pavlovic Today was told that the House of Commons would sit at noon for tributes to Her late Majesty on Friday, September 9. The House is likely to sit until approximately 10 pm.
“For all of us, the Queen has been a constant presence in our lives – as familiar as a member of the family, yet one who has exercised a calm and steadying influence over our country. Most of us have never known a time when she was not there. Her death is not only a tragedy for the Royal family, but a terrible loss for us all,” said the Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle.
“As Head of State, she has provided advice and the benefit of long experience to 15 prime ministers during her reign – and met more than a quarter of all the American presidents in the history of the US,” said Hoyle.
The House of Commons will then sit again on Saturday, September 10 at 2 pm, when a small number of senior Members of the Parliament will take the oath to His Majesty the King.
Tributes will then be continued. The House is expected to sit until approximately 10 pm, according to the Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle.
The last business to be taken on Saturday evening will be consideration of a formal humble address to His Majesty The King expressing the deep sympathy of the House on the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
The House of Commons is not expected to sit on Sunday.
