Business of the House — Programme — 15 Jun 2010 at 17:26
The majority of MPs voted to ensure consideration of a range of motions relating to the operation of committees could be dealt with on the day, rather than being deferred as the standing orders may otherwise have required them to be.
The motion approved by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That, at today's sitting, the Speaker shall put the Questions necessary to dispose of proceedings on the Motions in the name of Sir George Young relating to Backbench Business Committee, Election of Backbench Business Committee, Backbench Business (Amendment of Standing Orders), Westminster Hall (Amendment of Standing Orders), Topical Debates (Amendments of Standing Orders), Pay for Chairs of Select Committees, Backbench Business Committee (Review), September Sittings, Business of the House (Private Members' Bills), Deferred Divisions (Timing), Select Committees (Membership), Select Committees (Machinery of Government Change) and Sittings of the House not later than 9.30 pm;
- such Questions shall include the Questions on any Amendments selected by the Speaker which may then be moved;
- proceedings may continue after the moment of interruption; and Standing Order No. 41A (Deferred divisions) shall not apply.
