    Yes, if you are particularly eagle-eyed you will notice that a separate Era I Hansard has now appeared. A similar one will appear for Era II (which is a simple copy-and-paste job from Word) and then the main Hansard will go on a diet to be slimmed down to Era III only. I currently have a version that is about a fortnight out of date, so once I have updated that (either tonight or tomorrow) that will be posted.

    Motions, amendments and SoIs to follow.

    Tremendous news!!! Will links to these be added to the links to other MHoC articles otherwise they are paticually difficult to access.

    Also can I have your ruling on early closure motions? The fixed term parliament act IRL legislates for them which implies that cannon makes them legally enforceable however they are not mentioned in the GD or constitution. I know that if either of these documents said they weren't permissible that would trump the act but as they do not mention such a thing does the act apply or is it considered a countermand by omission?

    Unless I'm missing the point, such logic would make UU's amendment redundant

    Yes they will once I've completed the job.

    I can't find anything on them from a quick half-time Google, but Acts and parts of Acts relating to procedure are generally not considered part of Canon as MHoC procedure is set out by the GD and Constitution.

    The section of the act is there and that is what I thought. Just wanted to check.

    Not really, we didn't go out in the round of 16 to Iceland so a semi final will do me fine.

    Yes, that is procedural so does not count as part of Canon.

    Petitions is still to go (from memory that one is quite a long way out of date) and I need to create one for SoIs as well.

    Though I understand the Speaker is busy with all the various Hansards could he get the elections wiki updated as well.

    My previous offer of lending a helping hand stands - but obviously I won't abuse my powers by changing something like myself without permission.

    Ummmm you know that that isn't a locked wiki??? So anyone can go and change it and it wouldn't be an abuse.

    None of them appear as locked to me so I can't tell which ones are and which aren't. If it's possible for anyone to edit this one them I'm surprised it's this out of date.
