HOC Early Day Motions

The TSR house of commons occasionally will have an early day motion submitted for discussion and debate. This will usually be related to a current issue either in the TSR or "real world". These take a similar form to the early day motions submitted in the "real house of commons". MPs can pledge their support for a motion but there is not a formal vote. Early day motions will stay open for four days and then be closed.
