EDM number 133 in 1998-99, proposed by Owen Paterson on 16/12/1998.

That this House notes the ramshackle state of the Labour Party's constitution, which allowed Liz Davies to stand as a candidate for, and be elected to, the Labour Party National Executive Committee, but prohibited her from standing as a parliamentary candidate at the last general election; notes similar inconsistencies in respect of the Labour Party's attitude to the honourable Members for Falkirk West, Brent East and Cardiff West; and urges the Government to sort out the constitution of the Labour Party, rather than inflicting further damage on the constitution of the UK.

This motion has been signed by a total of 16 MPs.
