I must now call on the Members of the House, according to the usual custom, to take the Oath of Allegiance or to affirm at the Table of the House, first doing so myself.

The Speaker first, alone, standing on the upper step of the Chair, took and subscribed the Oath required by law.

I should remind hon. Members that, until they take the Oath or affirm, they must not sit during any debate or vote in any Division of the House, and they will not receive any salary. Hence I signed quickly.

The arrangements for swearing in are set out in the Chamber information note, and a guidance note is available from the Table Office and the Vote Office.

I propose to call first the Father of the House, then the Mother of the House, then members of the Cabinet, then members of the shadow Cabinet, then Privy Counsellors not included in those two groups, wherever they may be sitting, and then other Ministers. Thereafter, I shall call other hon. Members broadly according to the Parliament of their first entry or, for those with broken service, that of their most recent entry. The first group will be those who have been Members since before the 2010 election. Thereafter, I shall proceed to call Members by successive Parliaments. I do not expect to call new Members until tomorrow.

I propose to remain in the Chair until about 9 o’clock this evening, if Members continue to come forward, with a suspension at around 6.30 pm until 7.30 pm. The House will sit tomorrow at 11.30 am. I propose to remain in the Chair until about 4 o’clock, with a suspension between 1.30 and 2.30 pm. The House will sit at 9.30 am on Thursday, and I will be in the Chair for swearing in until 11.30 am, by which time I hope we will have made enough progress to permit all Members to swear in who wish to do so. The House will therefore not need to sit again before Wednesday 17 July, when we return for the King’s Speech.

I remind Members that swearing in, as a proceeding of the House, is recorded by the television cameras, and that anything said or done by Members may appear on television or in Quentin Letts’s column, and may be picked up by the microphones. It will assist the broadcasters if new Members clearly state their name and constituency when they come to the Dispatch Box. Progress will depend, of course, on the number of Members wishing to swear in at any particular time. I advise Members to watch the Annunciators to establish progress, and to speak to their Whips.

Before we proceed to swearing in, it may assist Members to know that the Government have indicated that they intend to table a motion to provide that the House should rise for the summer on Tuesday 30 July. The new Leader of the House asked me to read that out on her behalf, and she will announce further details in due course.

Let us begin with the Father of the House.
