Member's Day

Today, barring urgency, is a Member's Day, though not a very interesting one. Last Member's Day, Labour successfully filibustered on Heather Roy's Education (Freedom of Association) Amendment Bill, and so we're looking at the same committee stages as we were last time. Meanwhile, the bottom of the Order Paper is clogged with bills waiting for their first reading. And with at least one bill due back from Committee soon, we're unlikely to see any progress on them (and hence, any ballot for new bills) for at two or three months.
