Standing orders relating to the committee on unopposed bills

45.18The composition of the committee on unopposed bills has already been described (para 45.9 ). Two other standing orders relate to procedure before this committee.

No member of a committee on an unopposed bill in which they are locally or otherwise interested may vote on any question that may arise, but they may attend and take part in the proceedings of the committee.1

The promoters of an unopposed private bill are entitled to be heard before the committee in favour of the bill by themselves or their agents.2
