Motion to sit in private — 28 Oct 2005 at 09:35

Eric Forth moved "That the House sit in private", in accordance to Standing Order No. 163, which says:

If at any sitting of the House... any Member moves 'That the House sit in private' the Speaker... shall forthwith put the question 'That the House sit in private', and such question, though opposed, may be decided after the expiration of the time for opposed business, but such a Motion may be made no more than once in any sitting.

This was a procedural tactic. By ensuring the defeat of a motion to sit in private at the beginning of the sitting, Forth makes it impossible for any member to move the motion during a subsequent debate.

If such a motion is brought during the debate for a Bill, and fewer than 40 MPs vote in it, then the debate ends immediately regardless of the result, (according to Standing Order 44) as has been done on 2003-03-14. The debate surrounding that division is worth following for an illustration of the consequences.

See What is a motion to sit in private? in the FAQ.
