Selected Decisions of Speakers of the House of Commons

During their tenure, Speakers are called upon to interpret how the rules of the House should apply and make formal decisions or rulings on specific procedural matters before the House. The selected decisions of Speakers bring together the significant rulings of Speakers of the House of Commons.
