Timetable for Consideration of Public Spending Estimates — 24 Feb 2016 at 19:40

The majority of MPs voted in favour of proposals for timetabling House of Commons debates on public spending estimates.

The motion supported by the majority of MPs taking part in this vote was:

  • That this House agrees with the Report of the Liaison Committee of 10 February:
  • (1) That a day not later than 18 March be allotted for the consideration of the following Estimates for financial year 2015-16: Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, insofar as it relates to the science budget; and Department of Health, insofar as it relates to end of life care.
  • (2) That a further day not later than 18 March be allotted for the consideration of the following Estimates for financial year 2015-16: Foreign & Commonwealth Office, insofar as it relates to the Spending Review 2015; and Home Office, insofar as it relates to reform of the police funding formula.

The report was published via the House of Commons' "Votes and Proceedings" on the 10th of February 2016[1] and corrected on the 11th of February. The correction changed the dates mentioned from the 29 February and 1st of March to the 18th of March.

The motion was listed on the House of Commons' agenda with the uncorrected dates on the 11th of February[3] but was not considered on that day[4].

The corrected motion was put to the House of Commons on the 23rd of February 2016[5][6] with the division deferred until the 24th of February under Standing Order No. 41A[7]
