Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I have always found you very patient in hearing the concerns of any colleague in the House, and always passionate about the rulings that you make.
If I may remind you, the other day you made a ruling on meaningful vote 3, and you said that you wanted to make it clear that you expected the test of change to be met and that the Government
“should not seek to circumvent my ruling by means of tabling either a ‘notwithstanding’
motion or a paving motion. The Table Office has been instructed that no such motions will be accepted.”—[Official Report,
Vol. 657, c. 370.]
What, then, is motion (C), which seems to be exactly that?
