GUEST,The Shambles Live Music Bill - please help (45) RE: Live Music Bill - please help 20 Jan 12

Yes - I'm not too sure if they know they got it right or just what happened. This, as it happens account, is the nearest to an explanation of the quite baffling events of today in the commons.

It is technically possible to rush through the report and third reading of the Live Music Bill, if absolutely no-one objects, but it will be tight. Lib Dem Alan Reid has just attempted to drop an amendment he's been pursuing, presumably in order to save a little time, but he's been told it's too late, because MPs are voting on whether or not to vote on it; and if they agree to vote on it, the vote must go ahead.

UPDATE @2.30pm: This is extraordinary! MPs have just spent five hours debating the Daylight Saving Bill and it has run out of time without even getting out of report stage; but the Live Music Bill - which has never been debated on the floor of the Commons at all - has been waved through into law.
