Top Hats And Parliamentary Procedure

EDM number 1623 in 1992-93, proposed by DN Campbell-Savours on 16/03/1993.

That this House believes the procedure whereby honourable Members are required to wear a top hat or other suitable head covering during certain proceedings on the floor of the House should be ended; calls upon the Select Committee on Procedure to recommend ending the practice; and believes that this whole procedure brings the House into disrepute across the world.

This motion has been signed by a total of 56 MPs.
