Procedure Committee (Commons)
Report published: Awaiting Government Response
The Procedure Committee is looking at the procedures and practices of the House relating to private Member’s bills, in the light of the work undertaken by the predecessor Committee in the 2013-14 Session.
This short inquiry will review the package of proposals adopted by the predecessor Committee in 2014, with a view to making recommendations for the present House to consider. The legislative process for bills introduced on Fridays by backbench Members successful in the ballot will be the primary focus, but the Committee will also review the use of presentation Bills and Bills introduced under the ‘ten-minute rule’ (Standing Order No. 23).
Evidence given by Chris Bryant MP, Shadow Leader of the House and Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, Leader of the House of Commons
