Select Committee on Procedure Minutes of Evidence

Letter to the Leader of the House of Commons from Colin Challen MP (P 6)

  I would like to suggest that there should be a mechanism for debating EDMs. This would provide for EDMs with a certain level of support—eg 200 signatories—being entered into a ballot for time, perhaps a session once a month of two or three hours, if necessary in Westminster Hall.
