Proposed temporary Standing Orders for a sifting committee mechanism
On 7 December 2017 the Chair of the Committee wrote to the Leader of the House to request that a proposal for temporary standing orders to establish a committee to sift statutory instruments laid under certain provisions of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill be tabled on Future Business.
On 11 December 2017 the Leader of the House tabled the proposal below to the Future Business section of the Order Paper. This contains items of business expected to be taken in the House on a future day.
The Leader of the House has expressed the intention to move the motion to establish temporary Standing Orders once the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill has received Royal Assent.
