Parliament Rules Query

Recommended Posts

I think Margaret Thatcher was Leader of the Opposition when she put forward an EDM censuring JimCallaghan's govt in March 1979, and all those who signed it were on the Opposition front bench, weren't they?

 

"22 March 1979 – A Motion put down by Rt Hon Margaret Thatcher, the then Leader of the Opposition, censuring the Government. When this Motion was debated on 28 March, it was agreed to, leading to a General Election.

 

351 NO CONFIDENCE IN HER MAJESTY’S GOVERNMENT Mrs Margaret Thatcher Mr William Whitelaw Sir Keith Joseph Sir Geoffrey Howe Mr James Prior Mr Francis Pym That this House has no confidence in Her Majesty’s Government"

 

Example 3 from Appendix C of this:  p03.pdf (parliament.uk)

 

Whether that would still be the case I do not know.

 

Why do you ask?

Believe for an EDM, they have to have signatures of a number of MP's supporting it. 

We could do with some help from you.

It is because the sponsors of the EDM are mostly SNP and The Greens, plus John McDonnell.

 

Very rare for Labour front bench to support SNP positions.

 

The answer is politics. 

 

Ask Kier Starmer why Labour front bench member could not support it.

What makes you think that is the reason?  Is that what your MP has told you?   😉  If so, ask him again!

 

As unclebulgaria has said, it'll be Stan Laurel Keir Starmer who'll know the answer... 

 

EDIT:  If you are a Labour voter there's nothing to stop Keir Starmer supporting it himself...

I've emailed a sponsor to ask. They will likely speak truthfully. Thanks, I hadn't thought to do that before asking.  Will update when I know more. 

 

Yes, that was the reply/excuse given from my MP!

 

P.S. Apologies for posting in the Bear Garden, I don't seem to have the option to click on the legal forums etc.

Hi.

 

I don't know why you can't get onto our legal forums - what happens when you try to post please?

 

But for now, I think your query is OK where it is.

It just comes up with all the forum options but only 2 or 3 of them are available to click. I thought it might be because I am a new member...

I think I am on the main page when I click on "Start New Topic" but can't be sure exactly where I am as I have found the site difficult to navigate. I have copied and pasted the box that comes up when I click 'Start New Topic' with the highlighted choices it gives me to click on:

Moved the thread for you

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

OK. So you click on Create and you get a drop down menu. Second on the list is Topic.

 

Then you get Select Forum with a drop down list.

 

Anyway, I see that dx has moved your thread so you may not need this yet.
