Presentation and First Reading (Standing Order No. 57)
Mr Frank Field presented a Bill to abolish the House of Lords and make provision for its replacement by a Senate.
Bill read the First time; to be read a Second time on 26 October, and to be printed (Bill 230).
For the benefit of others, Frank Field said, “26 October 2018, unless the Speaker can get him a better time.” That is a very novel interpretation of the procedure.
Please, Mr Speaker.
He is exhorting me to find a better time.
It is about the abolition of the House of Lords. They are overruling us.
I think the right hon. Gentleman may be investing me with powers that it be would joyous to have, but which I do not possess. The House seems to be in a good mood at the moment.
