Procedure Committee (Commons)
The Committee has received a memorandum from the Government setting out its view on the procedure which should apply on the 'meaningful vote'. The Government argues that if a motion to approve a withdrawal agreement is passed in an amended form, this could inhibit the Government’s ability to ratify the agreement. It points out that under the House’s current procedures for considering amendments to motions the House may not have the opportunity to vote on the text of the motion as tabled by the Government.
The Committee is inviting written submissions on the issues the 'meaningful vote' raises for the House’s usual procedures for decisions on amendable motions.
