Sittings in Westminster Hall (Suspension) (No.2)

Volume 687: debated on Tuesday 12 January 2021

Motion made,

That, notwithstanding Standing Order No. 10 (Sittings in Westminster Hall) and the Order of the House on 23 September 2020, there shall be no sittings in Westminster Hall with effect from Wednesday 13 January until the House otherwise orders.—(Michael Tomlinson.)

I have to tell the House that Mr Speaker has selected the manuscript amendment to the motion in the name of the hon. Member for Christchurch (Sir Christopher Chope). Copies of that manuscript amendment are available in the Vote Office and electronically. Under the practice of the House under current arrangements, a selected amendment to a motion that cannot be proceeded with after the moment of interruption constitutes an objection, so the motion cannot be taken.
