One of the reasons for the lack of productivity is because of an eventful week.

Nope. I think it's kind of unfair to count stuff which can only be done by the Government. It's good that you are submitting treaties and statements, but it's what should be expected of TSR Governments, so you don't get extra credit!

This part is pretty disappointing, what does the government have to say on the matter?

I think this is a poor judge of actual performance. It's easy to submit plenty bills that don't go anywhere (I think this challenge is actually bad for activity because it's creating this incentive to go for quantity and not quality), the real test is to put out decent stuff that gets through, or sparks a lot of debate. That's the point of a model legislature after all. So far this is how the House looks: (With the first number being the total amount of bills submitted and the second being the amount passed.)

TSR Government 8 4 50%
TSR Opposition 9 3 33.3%
TSR Libertarian Party 4 4 100%
TSR Socialist Party 3 1 33.3%
TSR Liberal Democrats 5 1 20%
JPKC (as an independent MP) 3 3 100%

Looks like the Libertarians'll be continuing their winning streak from last term.

I accept there is no perfect measure of performance, but I don't think it is appropriate for me to use number of bills passed as a measure of performance, as it is quite political. A bill which fails isn't necessarily bad, but it may not allign with the politics of the members voting.

You make a fair point about poor quality bills being submitted though.

I don't think there have been many particularly bad serious bills, but I get what you're saying about how the statistics might not be representative. At least we've got something to debate this term though

A lapse on our part, we should have bills coming out this week and once exam season is over we will be at optimum activity levels.

What part don't you get?

Assuming you're referring to the Lib Dems, you've submitted/co-sponsored 5 bills so far this term (yes/no?), and only one of these has passed into law (the Fair Pay Act 2012!), correct?

I just think the challenge should be abandoned and replaced with a more ad hoc supervision of what parties are up to. As much as I like the idea of discussing HGV regulation and tax on female sanitation products etc. etc., I do feel a line should be drawn somewhere. Effort should be the main criteria for deciding how well a party's done IMO. Of course the bill passage measure is as flawed as the challenge, though it does shine some light on the problems with the current system - namely that lots of stuff gets chucked in and then withdrawn without a second's worth of thought.

Hopefully Ad HOC will do just that

As you can see we have a new Bill out tonight along with a third reading. I'm hoping to work on some more stuff in the MUN shortly to bring before the House (though that won't be counted in the statistics) and there's more to come. A lot of people have exams though so really I don't think that you can argue this point too much because obviously activity dips around exams.
