Business of the House — Consideration of Motions on EU Withdrawal on 25 June 2019 — 12 Jun 2019 at 16:25

The majority of MPs voted against the House of Commons, on the 25th of June 2019, prioritising considering motions on the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union.

The rejected proposal included a suspension of the standing order providing for government business to generally have precedence at every sitting of the House of Commons.

The motion rejected by a majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • (1) That, on Tuesday 25 June—
  • (a) Standing Order No. 14(1) (which provides that government business shall have precedence at every sitting save as provided in that order) shall not apply;
  • (b) precedence shall be given to a motion relating to the Business of the House in connection with matters relating to the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union;
  • (c) if more than one motion relating to the Business of the House is tabled, the Speaker shall decide which motion shall have precedence;
  • (d) the Speaker shall interrupt proceedings on any business having precedence before the Business of the House motion at 1.00 pm and call a Member to move that motion;
  • (e) debate on that motion may continue until 2.00 pm at which time the Speaker shall put the questions necessary to dispose of proceedings on that motion including the questions on amendments selected by the Speaker which may then be moved;
  • (f) any proceedings interrupted or superseded by this order may be resumed or (as the case may be) entered upon and proceeded with after the moment of interruption.
