Business of the House (Railways Bill) — 19 Jul 1999

I beg to move,


(1) notwithstanding Standing Order No. 63 (Committal of bills), the Railways Bill be referred to the Environment, Transport and Regional Affairs Committee; and

(2) the Committee shall consider the provisions of the Bill and report thereon by 12th November 1999.

I think that my hon. Friend the Member for Macclesfield can take comfort from the fact that he has not been misled by any proceedings in the Modernisation Committee. It is the Government who are choosing this moment to innovate by introducing a new procedure without consulting the Modernisation Committee.

Question put, That the Question be now put:--

The House divided: Ayes 220, Noes 9.
