Lisbon Treaty — Amendment to proposed Commons timetable for debate — rejected — 28 Jan 2008 at 21:45
Hilary Benn MP, Leeds Central voted with the majority (No).
The programme motion restricted the Commons to a set timetable for debating the European Union (Amendment) Bill, which implements the Lisbon Treaty. The amendment would have increased the number of days allotted for the debate, and increased the proportion of each day spent debating amendments to the bill.
Consequently, the amendment was intended to delay the passing of the European Union (Amendment) Bill.
