Motion made and Question proposed, That the Parliamentary Constituencies Bill be now read a second time.—(Chloe Smith.)

The Deputy Speaker announced a time limit on backbench speeches (Standing Order No. 47(1)).

Amendment moved, to leave out from 'That' to end and add 'this House, whilst supporting the retention of 650 parliamentary constituencies, declines to give a Second Reading to the Parliamentary Constituencies Bill because the Bill would disproportionately and undemocratically concentrate power over constituency sizes and boundaries in the hands of the executive, because the Bill fails to create a more flexible electoral quota allowing greater consideration to be given to local ties and community connections when drawing constituency boundaries, and because the proposed numeration date for the boundary review of 1 December 2020 risks boundaries being based on an incomplete register owing to the impact of the covid-19 pandemic on the preparation of electoral registers'.—(Cat Smith.)
