European Union (Referendum) Bill — Motion That The House Do Now Resume — 31 Jan 2014 at 15:17

Lord Shipley voted to curtail debate on a referendum on the UK's membership of the EU.

The majority of Lords voted to curtail debate on a referendum on the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union.

Members of the House of Lords were considering the European Union (Referendum) Bill[1]. The motion approved in this vote was:

  • that the House do now resume.

As a result the consideration of the Bill in committee stopped. The House of Lords as a whole then "resumed" and moments later the House of Lords adjourned.

Erskine May: Parliamentary Practice states:

  • If the committee stage is not completed at one sitting, it is necessary for a Lord (usually a government Whip) to move 'that the House do now resume'. When this motion has been agreed to, the Lord in the Chair leaves the Chair and takes his seat on the Woolsack. The House goes into committee again either later on the same day (on occasions when the House has been resumed in order to take other business) or on a future day.
