Presiding Officer Statement

The item started at 13.30

The Presiding Officer made a statement regarding language used in the chamber last week by the Leader of the UKIP group. Having reviewed the Record, the Presiding Officer stated that she had no doubt that Neil Hamilton AM had fallen foul of the Standing Orders that prohibit discourteous and unbecoming conduct and language that is disorderly, discriminatory, offensive, or which detracts from the dignity of the Assembly. The Presiding Officer explained that she had made her expectations known to him privately, and was grateful to him for accepting her view on this matter.

 

The Presiding Officer stated that she would encourage vibrant, vigorous and robust debate, but that Members must be sufficiently skilled to do so without detracting from the dignity of the Assembly or insulting the integrity of other Members. So long as Members did that, they would all be heard, irrespective of party.
