A230 – By-Election (Intervals) Amendment
Proposed by: Saracen's Fez MP (Liberal Democrat)
Seconded by: 04MR17 MP (Liberal Democrat), Bailey14 MP (Labour),* Joleee MP (Liberal Democrat), Rakas21 MP (Conservative), SoggyCabbages MP (Labour), TheRadishPrince MP (Liberal Democrat)

This House would adjust the Guidance Document as follows:

Remove the following from the section entitled 'MP Activity & Voting Reviews':

1) Four weeks after the State Opening of Parliament, the Speaker will publish a voting review outlining the turnout of each MP to all Division Lobby votes so far that term excluding amendments.

3) Four weeks after the previous voting review, another voting review will be published.

4) A new voting review is published every four weeks after and these procedures are repeated until the end of term.

And replace with the following, respectively:

1) Six weeks after the State Opening of Parliament, the Speaker will publish a voting review outlining the turnout of each MP to all Division Lobby votes so far that term excluding amendments.

3) Six weeks after the previous voting review, another voting review will be published.

4) A new voting review is published every six weeks after and these procedures are repeated until the end of term.

Notes
This amendment moves voting reviews to a six-weekly schedule from a four-weekly one. The move to a six-weekly schedule aims to reduce by-election fatigue, as well as to allow MPs elected in a by-election to settle into their roles before a new voting review and potentially a new by-election takes place.

Just a note, this Amendment will potentially impact the date of the next review.

I wonder how many rounds of attempting to treat symptoms it will take to realise that it achieves nothing, you don't fix broken things by going after the bits that ain't broke.
