Lord Speaker Meaning, as used in the UK Parliament

The post of Lord Speaker was created under the Constitutional Reform Act 2005.

The Lord Speaker presides over proceedings from the Woolsack. As the House is self-regulating, the Lord Speaker has no power to call members to order, to decide who speaks next, or to select amendments, but does call for divisions (votes) when necessary.
