On 12 September, the Speaker of the House of Commons, the Rt Hon John Bercow MP gave the Sixth Annual Bingham Lecture in Middle Temple Hall.
The Speaker's Lecture was titled: 'Process of Discovery: What Brexit has taught us (so far) about Parliament, Politics and the UK Constitution'.
The Speaker made three main arguments, the first was that the House of Commons' power over the executive was not the product of Brexit or minority government but was instead the result of a revival of the House of Commons. The second was in relation to Brexit and the Benn and Letwin Act passed by Parliament on 10 September, and the third argument was that recent events had indicated that there may now be a strong case for codifying some of the rules regulating Parliament's role in relation to the executive.
