L’intervention du Speaker dans les débats portant sur le Brexit : de la sélection des amendements à l’interdiction des votes répétés sur une question identique à la Chambre des Communes

Abstract : Acting as an impartial guarantor of British parliamentary law, the House of Commons Speaker, John Bercow, has intervened on several occasions during the debates on the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union. His most noteworthy intervention involved warning Theresa May's Government against holding several votes on the same question. Recalling the existence of a convention dating back to 1604, John Bercow said that a new vote could be held only if the Government could demonstrate that the motion presented was substantially different from the one rejected on 12 March 2019.
