Modernisation of the House of Commons — 26 Jan 2005 at 16:40

Dawn Primarolo MP, Bristol South voted with the majority (No).

A long series of changes were proposed to the Standing Orders of the House of Commons, related to the "sitting" hours of the House, to take effect after the General Election. These were edits to Standing Orders numbered 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 17, 24, 41A, 54, 83I, 88, 100, 108, 116.

The Aye-voters failed to change this list of changes (amendment (m)) for:

in line 64, at end insert:

"Line 6, at beginning insert ''Subject to paragraph (2A) below,'.
"Line 28, at end insert:
"(2A) Sub-paragraphs (a), (c), (d) and (e) of paragraph (2) above shall not apply to sittings of the House on Thursdays.".'.

The proposed set of changes to the Standing Orders, as amended by the last vote, but not this one, then passed without a further vote.

This may be a free vote for all parties.

(This was very confusing to piece together, and these changes now need explaining -julian)
