Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill — Curtail Debate and Move to Vote — 18 Nov 2016 at 13:33

MPs were considering the Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill[1]

The majority of MPs voted to curtail debate on the bill and hold a vote on its second reading.

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

  • That the Question be now put.

Agreement to the motion by the majority of MPs led immediately to a vote on the second reading of the Bill under consideration.

This vote was held 1:33pm[2] and if debate had concluded before 2.30pm the remaining time could be used to debate another bill[3].

It may be those voting to curtail the debate and hold the vote wanted to see debate on a further bill, or bills, occur.
