HC Deb 07 April 1892 vol 3 c879
MR. MCLAREN (Cheshire, Crewe)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the "Counts Out" which frequently take place on Tuesdays and Fridays when Private Members' Motions are down for discussion, he will propose to alter the Standing Orders affecting those days, so that Private Members' Bills may take precedence of Notices of Motions on Tuesdays, and so that on Fridays more than one Motion can be brought forward, and a division taken on each?


Without expressing any opinion on the advantage or disadvantage likely to arise from the suggested alteration of the Rules, I do not think this is a convenient moment for proposing an alteration in the Standing Orders of the House.
