House business in government time

18.37From time to time business proposed by non-ministerial Members is taken in government time. Such business can be usefully divided into that on which time is given as of right (on motions under Standing Order No 24, matters of privilege, for motions under Standing Order No 23 relating to bills and select committees, and on motions to allocate select committee Chairs to parties under Standing Order No 122(5)), business for which time is by tradition invariably given (motions from the Committee of Selection and relating to Church of England Measures), and miscellaneous business for which time may in exceptional circumstances be made available.
