913. Power to reprimand and admonish.

Offenders against parliamentary privilege may be reprimanded or admonished1. In such cases offenders are brought to the bar of the House concerned and there reprimanded or admonished by the Lord Speaker or the Speaker2 as the case may be. Where the offender is a member of the House of Commons, he customarily was reprimanded or admonished standing in his place; but more recently members have been reprimanded by virtue of a resolution agreed to by the House and no further formality has been used.
