Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill — Curtail Debate and Move to Vote — 1 Dec 2017 at 12:46

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

The majority of MPs voted to curtail debate and move to a vote on if the Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill should be read a second time and continue on its path to becoming law; enabling other Bills to be considered.

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

  • That the Question be now put.

The question in question which was unanimously agreed following the vote was:

  • That the Bill be now read a Second time.

The Bill contains provisions to

  • retain the number of MPs at 650, rather than reduce it to 600.
  • carry out boundary commission reviews of constituencies every ten, rather than five, years; after a report to be published by 1 October 2018.
  • requiring constituencies to have a number of electors within 10% of the UK average, with the exception of four island constituencies (Na h-Eileanan an Iar, Orkney and Shetland and two seats for the Isle of Wight).

The vote was held at 12:56pm[3]. The order paper for the day[4] stated:

  • If proceedings on the first Bill end before 2.30pm, subsequent Bills may be debated in the time remaining.

It may be those voting to curtail the debate and hold the vote wanted to see debate on a further bill, or bills, occur. Had the time allocated expired the proceedings via Standing Orders 11(2) "Friday Sittings" [5] and 9(4) "Sittings of the House"[6] would have enabled the question of a second reading to be put to the house.

The impact of this vote appears primarily to have been to curtail debate on the Bill and enable a further Bill or Bills to be considered.
