TSR Motion and Bill Challenge Watch
The TSR Motion and Bill challenge is for the Government and the TSR parties to:
- Submit one motion a week
- Submit two bills a month
If you can all meet this challenge, the Model HoC will be a really busy forum with lots of debates going on and as I always say, a little effort from each party makes a big difference to the Model House of Commons.
Like last time, I'll be keeping tabs on how well you all do and will update the results on Mondays, starting the 16th April. They'll be reset every 4 weeks and the party that wins will get a treat and in the party that loses, one of you will be fired. (Wait, wrong show.)
Anyway, I hope to see a lot of bills and motions from you all. There's an energy about this place which I didn't sense at the October election, so hopefully this will result in more, bills, motions, debates and newcomers!
Just as question, do joke/bills motions count? It seems a little... unfair, when they require so much less effort than most.
I think as they don't exist yet, we probably shouldn't count joke bills, but review it if they do reform.

It is just the first week of a 6 month term however, so I hope that it's not going to be the case that everything is pushed out now, and then a couple of weeks down the line it's quiet again!

It's been a very busy first week. The number of bills submitted in this week alone is more than half of what was submitted in the preceding 6 months, which is a promising statistic.
We've had a number of petitions submitted over the week which has also been good, but in order to keep the newcomers posting here, the regulars have got to keep up the pace! I don't expect we'll see this many bills every week, however if we can meet the motion & bill challenge every week, we'll maintain a healthy level of activity.
Also Metrobeans, as these go to vote could we have another league with the passed bills/motions after division (same amount of points).

Exactly, the Government's count isn't really representative. Looks like Labour have the most activity by this challenge.
In terms of MPs the Opposition is almost level-pegging, and I'd like this to be a contest of quality not quantity anyway. Just realised that 1 bill is counted thrice which means 3 parties get the benefit of working together - a great precedent to set. Let's not get pissy about activity when it's clear that all parties have seen a marked increase.
The Government is two parties and a hard working indie!
