Orders of the Day — Referendums (Scotland and Wales) Bill

Part of the debate – in the House of Commons at 3:31 pm on 22nd May 1997.

Alert me about debates like this

this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Referendums (Scotland and Wales) Bill because it would ask voters to give blanket approval to proposals in advance of legislation being published, debated, amended or agreed; and believes that such referendums should only be held after full and detailed scrutiny of the legislation in question on the floor of the House of Commons'-[Mr. Howard.]
