In UK parliamentary debates, an MP from the Government or Opposition gives a speech on the topic (e.g. see here). Yet, frequently, the person speaking "gives way" to another MP (called "right honorable lady/gentleman") of his/her choice, so that this MP intervenes, sometimes asking a further question to the member speaking. After watching this process several times, it is unclear to me:
- how requests to give way are put forward
- to whom the member speaking decides to give way
All I can find on this "giving way" business is here, but it does not address the issues above. Any ideas?
