Business of the House — Consideration of the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill — Requiring Prime Minister to Seek Delay To Withdrawal — 3 Sep 2019 at 21:47
The majority of MPs voted in favour of a proposed procedure to enable the House of Commons to pass a bill requiring the Prime Minister to seek a delay to the United Kingdom leaving the European Union until 31 January 2020 unless MPs have approved either terms of a withdrawal agreement, or withdrawal without an agreement.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote began:
- That this House has considered the matter of the need to take all necessary steps to ensure that the United Kingdom does not leave the European Union on 31 October 2019 without a withdrawal agreement and accordingly makes provision as set out in this order:
- (1) On Wednesday 4 September 2019
- (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) any proceedings governed by this order may be proceeded with until any hour, though opposed, and shall not be interrupted;
- (c) the Speaker may not propose the question on the previous question, and may not put any question under Standing Order No. 36 (Closure of debate) or Standing Order No. 163 (Motion to sit in private);
- (d) at 3.00 pm, the Speaker shall interrupt any business prior to the business governed by this order and call a Member to present the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill of which notice of presentation has been given and immediately thereafter (notwithstanding the practice of the House) call a Member to move the motion that the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill be now read a second time as if it were an order of the House;
The motion went on to make further provisions relating to the consideration of the Bill, including a timetable for proceedings.
