Iraq — Weapons of Mass Destruction — 24 Sep 2002 at 21:45
The motion was "That the House do now adjourn," which is a procedural motion to allow a debate on an open issue.
The issue was the publication of the long-awaited Iraq's weapons of mass destruction dossier, for which Parliament had been recalled.
There was no vote planned, but some MPs held a vote anyway (voting for the House not to adjourn), after which the Speaker said:
Order. I have a statement to make. That vote has served its intended purpose, demonstrating the strength of feeling in some quarters of the House on this difficult issue, but because of the rules of the House it does not have any procedural effect. As it is now past 10 o'clock, the debate on Iraq has concluded. It is now the duty of the Government Whip to move formally that this House do now adjourn to bring the sitting to a conclusion, and I must put the Question forthwith.
