Procedure Committee (Commons)

Private Members' Bills inquiry

Inquiry status: open - accepting written submissions

Accepting written submissions; the deadline is Friday 19 February 2016.

Scope of the inquiry

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).
