European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill — New Clause 4 — Amendability of Motions — 3 Apr 2019 at 22:11

The majority of MPs voted not to allow amendments to a proposed motions on seeking to delay the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union, except those seeking to change the withdrawal date.

MPs were considering the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill[1].

The proposed new clause rejected by a majority of MPs in this vote was titled: Amendability of Motions and stated:

  • ‘Any motion brought forward under section 1(1) in the form set out in section 1(2) may be amended in line with section 1(3) only to include a date.

The rejected amendment was accompanied by the following explanatory statement:

  • This new Clause would prevent further amendments to standing orders etc.

The Bill[1] required a motion to be put to the House of Commons of the form:

  • “That this House agrees for the purposes of section 2 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 to the Prime Minister seeking an extension of the period specified in Article 50(3) of the Treaty on European Union to a period ending on […]”

The amendment rejected in this vote would have prevented anything other than the date being amended during debate.
