Mr Peter Bone, supported by Mr Philip Hollobone, Mr Christopher Chope, Mr Douglas Carswell, Mr Nigel Dodds, Mark Reckless, Philip Davies and Mr David Nuttall, presented a Bill to require the holding of a referendum on whether the United Kingdom should remain a member of the European Union; and for connected purposes.The second reading is not until March next year. It looks like Douglas Carswell et al were busy chaps on that day:
United Kingdom (Parliamentary Sovereignty) Bill
Mr Christopher Chope, supported by Mr Peter Bone, Mr William Cash, Philip Davies, Mr Douglas Carswell, Mark Pritchard, Mr Philip Hollobone, Mr Brian Binley, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Mr David Nuttall and Mr John Whittingdale, presented a Bill to reaffirm the sovereignty of the United Kingdom Parliament; and for connected purposes.
Why's this a Private Member's Bill? I thought parliamentary sovereignty was something that Cameron promised before the election. Oh I forgot, yet another Cameron broken promise.
Mr Christopher Chope, supported by Mr Peter Bone, Philip Davies, Mr Mark Field, Mr Philip Hollobone, Mr Douglas Carswell, Mr David Nuttall and Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, presented a Bill to provide for minimum turn-out thresholds for referendums; to impose restrictions on holding elections and referendums on the same day; to facilitate combined referendums on different issues; and for connected purposes.
European Union (Audit of Benefits and Costs of UK Membership) Bill
Mr Philip Hollobone presented a Bill to require the Secretary of State to commission an independent audit of the economic costs and benefits of the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union; and for connected purposes.
European Communities Act 1972 (Repeal) Bill
All of these are unlikely to be successful, Private Member's Bills rarely are. The are susceptible to being talked out which is precisely what happened last time.
