The House of Commons was prorogued on Thursday 28 April 2022, ending the Parliamentary session. During prorogation, the House will not be sitting, meaning that no debates will be held and no Questions can be tabled until the start of the new session.

Black Rod summoned the Commons to hear the Acts which have passed into law during this session of Parliament.

Parliament will return for a new session on Tuesday 10 May 2022, which will begin with the Queen’s Speech.
