Referendum Location Amendment
Proposed by: Quamquam123 MP (LAB)
Seconded by: mobbsy91 (CON), DMcGovern (SOC), Unown Uzer (UKIP), TheDefiniteArticle (LAB), notneb (LAB)



Referendum Location Amendment



This House shall adjust the Guidance Document as follows:

In the Guidance Document, amend clause 3 of the Referendums section from:

3) A thread will be posted in Current Affairs along with a poll posing the question to the members of TSR.

to:

3) A thread will be posted in the House of Commons forum along with a poll posing the question to the members of TSR.


Notes:
Other legislation debates, general elections and by-elections take place in the MHoC forum so there is no reason why referendum debates should take place in a different forum.

Nay. Referendums have previously succeeded in bringing new members into the House and getting involved those who'd never normally venture into the MHoC or participate in debates. They've worked well for that purpose and I see no reason to change it.

Given there will presumably now be a mass PM, and hopefully a sidebar poll, I question how much difference moving it would make. It just keeps it all tidy, and corresponds with where we carry out general elections.

No, it is an amendment to prevent referendums by ruling referendums should take place in a forum that does not exist.

Nay. I think, as others have said, this would reduce turnout which isn't a good thing.

I mentioned this internally already, but what exactly is the motivation of reducing the turnout? Do the proposers expect a specific effect on the result of the potentially upcoming Death Penalty referendum?

Ooh that's true, it says "House of Commons Subforum" should be "Model House of Commons subforum" if we're being pedantic

I assume this'll be amended for vote QQ?

According to the GD, all bills are posted in the House of Commons subforum so it must exist otherwise we would never have any bills.

A House of Commons forum does not exist but a Model House of Commons forum does exist.

I did think about what to call it at the time but I looked through the GD and saw that it had been called the 'House of Commons' forum. However, if you really insist, I can change it for Division.
