Speaker’s Statement

Volume 654: debated on Monday 11 February 2019

Order. I have received a letter today from the operations manager of the central criminal court informing me that Fiona Onasanya, the hon. Member for Peterborough, has been sentenced to a period of imprisonment of three months. I have also received a letter from the registrar of criminal appeals informing me that Fiona Onasanya has submitted an appeal against her conviction, which is listed for hearing on 5 March. I shall cause the text of the letters to be published in the Votes and Proceedings and in the Official Report.

[The letters will appear at the end of today’s proceedings.]

On an altogether more upbeat note, I hope that the whole House will want to join me in offering the warmest possible congratulations to the hon. Member for Bolsover (Mr Skinner) on the occasion of his birthday—87 years young today. I hope that the hon. Gentleman is with us in this Chamber for many years to come.
