Composition Of The Backbench Committee

EDM number 302 in 2010-12, proposed by Angus MacNeil on 23/06/2010.
Categorised under the topics of House of Commons and Parliamentary procedure.

That this House notes that the Backbench Committee in effect resembles a three party committee as backbench members outwith the three largest parties cannot stand for membership of the committee; and calls on the Government to bring forward proposals to ensure that no members are excluded from participation and that no members are less equal than others.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
