DissolutionPeriodc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/time-period/DissolutionPeriod

ParliamentPeriodc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/time-period/ParliamentPeriod

The period of a single Parliament between its first assembly after a general election and its dissolution. A parliament period contains session and prorogation periods. These run contiguously within a parliament period. In other words, during a parliament period, Parliament is either in session or prorogued. A Parliament begins on the date named in the proclamation which is now issued after a dissolution (until 2015 the dissolution proclamation also named the date for Parliament to reassemble). The start date of a Parliament may be changed by subsequent proclamations. A Parliament ends at the next dissolution, the date of which is determined by the Fixed Term Parliament Act 2011 or is named in a proclamation after Parliament has voted for an early general election (before 2015 the date of dissolution was indeterminate and fixed by proclamation). Parliament periods are the same across both Houses. Parliaments are numbered in sequence from the first Parliament of the United Kingdom beginning with 1801. As of April 2018, the current Parliament is the 57th.

PrintingDayc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/time-period/PrintingDay

In the House of Commons, a printing day is a non-sitting day during an adjournment (not including a non-sitting Friday) on which any parliamentary questions or amendments to Bills tabled since the last sitting day are published. The parliamentary questions so published are not officially tabled until the next sitting day, but under House of Commons Standing Order No. 64 (retrieved at 17/04/2018), amendments to Bills received before 16h30 on the last business day of the period are treated as if that day were a sitting day.

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/time-period/Recess

A period during a session when one or both Houses have adjourned to a day other than the next usual sitting day, which may last between a few days and several weeks. Officially, a recess is the period when Parliament is prorogued, but it is now used to indicate what are officially known as periodic adjournments (which would normally be called holidays). A periodic adjournment may be ended by a prorogation or a dissolution.

Sessionc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/time-period/Session

The period during which Parliament is active. The first session of a parliament begins on the same day as the parliament. This date is named in the dissolution proclamation. It ends on the day named in the subsequent prorogation proclamation. Subsequent sessions begin and end on dates named in prorogation proclamations. The final session ends with a prorogation followed by a dissolution. Parliament may be prorogued a few days before dissolution. A session typically lasts for one year though isn't bound by that. Session periods are the same across both Houses.

StatutoryDayc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://parliament.uk/ontologies/time-period/StatutoryDay

There is a defined period of time during which Members of either House can object to negative and made affirmative statutory instruments. Only certain calendar days are included when calculating this period. The total number and nature of days on which a Member can object are defined by statute and differ across parliamentary procedure. These statutory days comprise consecutive days including weekends, excluding any days during which Parliament is dissolved, or prorogued, or any period during which both Houses are adjourned for more than four days. Differences in sitting days between Houses are not taken into account, unless the instrument is laid into the House of Commons only. In this case the calculation is based on Commons sitting days and short adjournments. On the day on which a negative statutory instrument is laid, a forty day time period commences during which it is possible for Members to 'pray' against (table a motion objecting to) the instrument. This forty day period is defined by the Statutory Instruments Act 1946. For made affirmative statutory instruments the time limit is set out in the enabling Act, rather than in the Statutory Instruments Act 1946. It is typically 28 or 40 days. The time period commences on the day the instrument is made, rather than laid. The enabling Act stipulates which days are counted towards the time limit, and typically follows the logic previously described.
