Hold Extra Sitting Day on Wednesday Rather than Friday — 6 Mar 2013 at 20:12

The majority of MPs voted against the House of Commons holding an extra sitting day to allow for a four day budget debate on a Wednesday rather than a Friday, consequently avoiding in an additional Prime Minister's questions.

MPs were considering the motion:

  • That this House shall sit on Friday 22 March.

The amendment[1] which was rejected in this vote stated:

  • leave out from ‘shall’ to end and add ‘, notwithstanding the Resolution of 17 December 2012, sit on Wednesday 27 March and at its rising on that day adjourn until 15 April 2013.’.

The amendment would have resulted in an additional Wednesday sitting and consequently an additional Prime Minister's Questions.

Andrew Lansley MP explained the purpose of his original motion[2]:

  • The motion adds a further sitting day and its effect will therefore be to allow the four-day Budget debate to take place, as well as to accommodate the opportunity for the Backbench Business Committee to schedule business, including the traditional pre-recess Adjournment debate, on the last day before recess.
  • Sitting on an additional Friday would allow a continuation of the Budget debate but it would not be its last day, so there would be no requirement for Members to vote on that day.
