Select Committee on Procedure Minutes of Evidence

Letter from Hon Gwyneth Dunwoody MP (P 94 (Session 2005-06))

  Early Day Motions

  I should like to say that, although it can be irritating when Members write rubbish, if they did not have this opportunity, the ability of backbenchers to raise their concerns against a powerful executive would lessen.

  Sometimes the subjects are banal and would not be raised on the floor of the House, but they are nevertheless often important to constituents.
