Now, the Speaker of the House of Commons is elected by the Commons but on the nomination of the party leaders after wide consultation with ordinary Members. It is a convention that the sovereign's consent is sought and given. The Speaker is usually re-elected in subsequent Parliaments. The Speaker liaises with the Queen and between the Commons and the Lords. See LORD CHANCELLOR.
