Catching the Speaker's eye

Selected letter C

Catching the Speaker's eye describes the way in which MPs let the Speaker know that they want to speak during a debate or question time in the House of Commons. MPs may speak only if they are called to do so by the Speaker. MPs attract the attention of the Speaker by standing up briefly every time the next MP is about to be called.
