Banking (Special Provisions) Bill — Timetable — 19 Feb 2008 at 16:07

Jamie Reed MP, Copeland voted with the majority (Aye).

The majority voted to establish a fixed schedule[1] for the passage of the Banking (Special Provisions) Bill[2]. In particular, the House is not to adjourn on 21 February until the Bill receives its Royal Assent.

This Bill confers wide powers onto the Government to nationalize banks, but is understood to be for the purpose of nationalizing Northern Rock.[3] Had it named Northern Rock explicitly, it would be a Private Bill or a Hybrid Bill, and therefore be subject to a different set of processes of consultation and review than a general purpose Public Bill, which in practice can be moved through the procedure more quickly.[4]
