Home Secretary, Theresa May, made a statement to the House of Commons on Monday 13 December, updating MPs on the protests that took place in Parliament Square on Thursday 9 December and the attack on the royal car carrying TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.
Oral statements are made after Question Time (or at 11am on a Friday). Statements usually relate to matters of policy or government actions. At the end of a statement, MPs can respond or question the government minister on its contents.
