    Aye, but like the Labour Bill which has now been withdrawn, they're hardly imaginative or bold Bills. The Opposition is very disappointing so far.

    That has to be one of the worst formatted Bills I have seen in a while.

    Ok, if it's a big, important bill I can understand recycling it from a few years ago. But one about this?

    Tanning booths - the battleground upon which elections are won and lost.

    It seems a lot like the Government are simply putting forward lots of Bills and Motions now to give the illusion that they're more active than the Opposition; we're planning, and unlike you we're not cramming all of our Bills into the short-term.

    I am confused, what tanning salon is unsupervised? have any of the TSR Liberal Democrats been to a tanning salon as if they had they'd understand that one it is not a tanning shop and two they are supervised.

    Quite frankly this is a poorly thought out and formatted bill. A big no from me.

    There are Bills planned throughout this Parliament. The Government will maintain the momentum of the high level of activity which we are creating in the House. I'm sure we've all heard the Labour party's claims that they are planning Bills, in particular any time during the last Parliament and how exactly did that turn out? It appears to me that 'planning' is a euphemism for doing nothing in the Labour Party.

    There were many personal issues that came up for myself and some other, more key members which made it harder to be active.

    We all have issues and I sympathise, but Labour is a large party. I can not believe that every single person had so many problems that they couldn't even debate or put together a motion.

    My apologies, I didn't know that I needed to tell you when both psychological and family problems occur. :rolleyes:

    I know, I can't vouch for everybody, but those that tend to be more active had very large things coming up.

    So that's those who tend to be more active, but still why no motions? It was a poor show by the last Government whatever way you look at it.

    Because for me personally bills are better than motions as motions have a smaller impact (my view, but I can't speak for the others in Labour).

    No my point is that activity is activity. I would rather produce a motion and show that my party is active than do nothing. The fact is that nothing was produced and even while in Opposition the state of the Bills (like this one in particular) by Labour and the Lib Dems (a former governing party) is uninspiring.

    Motions take 30/40 mins to put together at best, Good Bills take up to 1,2,3 nights. It's not much of ask for an entire party.

    Awful formatting of Bills by the TSR Lib Dems probably affects more people than this bill actually intends to.

    I would rep you, but it wont let me :P
