Private Members' Bills

EDM number 326 in 2014-15, proposed by George Howarth on 09/09/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Legislative process and Parliamentary procedure.

That this House believes that Private Members' Bills should be debated on 26 sittings held on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings between 7.00pm and 10.00pm instead of on 13 Friday sittings; notes that this proposed revision would mean the House would sit for an additional six and a half hours in a session; and, accordingly, calls on the Procedure Committee to come forward with the necessary amendments to Standing Orders to implement such changes.

This motion has been signed by a total of 18 MPs.
