Committal

45.6Every private bill, after being read a second time and committed, stands referred under Standing Order 109 to the Committee of Selection, whose duties in this connection are described fully at para 45.10. A bill which is referred to the Examiners after second reading is not committed, however, until the Examiners have reported compliance with any standing orders not previously inquired into or, if the standing orders have not been complied with, the Standing Orders Committee has resolved that such standing orders should be dispensed with, and the House has agreed to this resolution.1
