Regional Select Committee (West Midlands)

Volume 498: debated on Monday 2 November 2009

Motion made, and Question proposed,

That Mr David Kidney be discharged from the West Midlands Regional Select Committee and Mrs Janet Dean be there added.—(Mark Tami.)

This motion is debatable if moved before 10 o’clock, so it would be entirely wrong for the House simply to rubber-stamp a decision of this magnitude on the membership of the West Midlands Regional Select Committee, without having a full and proper debate on the matter. I note that we have almost a minute in which we can find perhaps arguments on either side about whether the hon. Member for Burton (Mrs. Dean) should replace the Under-Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, the hon. Member for Stafford (Mr. Kidney), as the motion suggests.

Debate adjourned (Standing Order No. 9(3))

Debate to be resumed tomorrow.
