PRIVATE MEMBERS' BILLS
EDM #1564
Tabled 09 March 2011
2010-12 Session
There has been an amendment to this EDM.
That this House expresses concern that Private Members' Bills are presented to the House on Fridays; notes that Friday is the day commonly used by hon. Members to visit their constituencies; notes the importance for hon. Members to have a day in their constituency to hold surgeries and attend local events; is concerned that Private Members' Bills have often been unable to reach Committee Stage because less than 100 hon. Members were in attendance; notes that this was the case for the Sustainable Livestock Bill on 12 November 2010, where only 62 hon. Members were able to attend, despite 176 having stated their support for the Bill; and calls upon the Government to examine the protocols for the Second Reading of Private Members' Bills, which unfairly discriminate against hon. Members who are active in their constituencies and thus hinder the passage of Private Members' Bills.
