How Parliament Works (not satire)

Buried in the bowels of the parliament.uk website is this very handy PDF, which does a quite extraordinarily good job of explaining Parliamentary procedure.  It includes:

  • House sitting times and order of business
  • How to raise an issue in the House (EDMs, Questions, amendments, Statutory Instruments etc)
  • Procedure and practice for different kinds of debate
  • Voting procedures
  • Declaration of Interests
  • Petitions
  • Different kinds of Bills

And more!
