This report proposes the repeal of Standing Order no. 163 and its replacement with a revised standing order which gives discretion to the Speaker, or the chair, to allow debate on a motion to sit in private, to put the question forthwith, or to decline to propose the question in the House. The proposal also includes provision for the House to come out of a private sitting and to return to sitting in publicSo far as private Membera#39;s bill Fridays are concerned, we have already reported as follows: In recent times, it has become the practice routinely ... We conclude therefore that the aHouse sit in privatea procedure is not effective as a quorum call .
