Programme Motions

(asked on 1st June 2020) - View Source

Question to the Leader of the House:

To ask the Leader of the House, whether he plans to provide additional time in programme motions for House Business as a result of the additional time required for divisions in the House while social distancing measures are in place.

This question was answered on 4th June 2020

The division lobbies have been replaced by a more appropriate alternative and I pay tribute to Mr Speaker for his work to devise a method of voting that allows us to vote in person but is also safe and in line with Public Health England advice.

I was pleased to see that the time taken for divisions decreased significantly over the course of the day, as members became more used to the new process.

On the specific question of programme motions, it is for the House to agree any programme motions in the usual way.
