Select Committee on Procedure of the House Second Report


Second Report from the Select Committee on Procedure of the House


MONDAY 3 FEBRUARY 2003

BY THE SELECT COMMITTEE on Procedure of the House

ORDERED TO REPORT:

Proposal for a Northern Ireland Orders Grand Committee

The Committee has received from the Leader of the House a proposal for the establishment of a Committee to consider Northern Ireland Orders which come before the House while devolved government in Northern Ireland is suspended. The Leader's memorandum is printed as an Annex to this Report.

The Committee commends this proposal to the House. We propose that the Committee should be entitled the Northern Ireland Orders Grand Committee to reflect the fact that its procedures will be similar to those of other Grand Committees. As the Committee will have no fixed membership, there need be no formal motion of appointment and the House's agreement to this Report will provide authority for motions to be moved to apply the new procedure to specific orders.
