HC Deb 30 October 1980 vol 991 c853
Mr. St. John-Stevas

I beg to move, That Standing Order No. 33 (Selection of amendments) be amended, as follows: Line 21, after 'to', insert 'commit or'.

This amendment will enable Mr. Speaker to select or, if he does not wish to, not to select motions to commit Bills as if they were amendments under paragraph (1) of Standing Order No. 33. As at present drafted, Mr. Speaker's power of selection is limited to motions to recommit Bills.

Question put and agreed to.
