HC Deb 05 June 1882 vol 270 c82

asked Mr. Speaker, Whether any particular precedence attached to Members of the Government in placing Amendments on the Notice Paper; and whether if, after a private Member had placed on the Paper Notice of an Amendment in Committee, a Member of the Government put the same Amendment in different words, he was entitled to precedence?


Supposing two Amendments substantially the same are brought to the Table—one in the hands of the Member in charge of the Bill, and the other in the hands of another Member—precedence is given to the Amendment of the Member who has charge of the Bill.
