    I don't support the lottery idea, but agree that by-elections don't need to be given so much time.

    UU, would you be willing to change the timescale to the seven days suggested by myself above?
    I am willing to change it to what you proposed as long as other people agree to it.

    I am wondering, given promotion of the House is part of my remit, and a by-election is a chance to do that, why the author chose to shorten the voting period but not the submissions period?
    The voting period does not promote the House. Tell me, how many people have joined this House during the by-election?

    If the seconders and others are happy to agree to the change, I'm happy to second the amendment in later readings/ division.

    None have "joined" per se, but we had over 100 people taking part in the by-election just gone. People getting involved in MHoC politics, even if just to vote, is to be welcomed.

    Why not?
    I see this as at best a sideways step as it currently is, if a change is made I would prefer it to be what Toronto suggested, I would also be willing to second it if those changes are made
