Copyright (Rights and Remuneration of Musicians, etc.) Bill — Curtail Debate and Move to a Vote — 3 Dec 2021 at 13:09
The majority of MPs voted not to end the debate and move to a vote on giving performers a right to equitable remuneration in respect to music made available electronically on-demand.
The Bill provided for performers to be given a right to equitable remuneration in respect to music made available electronically on-demand.
The motion to curtail debate and move to a vote was triggered by the MP who had brought in the Bill, so appeared to be an attempt to progress the Bill, to see if a majority of MPs would support its second reading, and allow it to continue on its path to becoming law.
As it was the debate was adjourned when the allocated time ran out. The debate was nominally scheduled to resume on Friday 10 December. Generally on Fridays far more Bills are scheduled than are debated however so a rescheduled debate is not guaranteed to occur.
The motion rejected by a majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That the Question be now put.
The motion which had been under consideration was:
- That the Bill be now read a Second time.
