    C’mon on! This story really should explain that 10-minute rule bills are, like adjournment debates, nothing more than an opportunity to raise an issue; no bad thing, to be sure, but not actually imminent legislation in any way whatsoever.

    It’s good to see MPs raising issues like this, but to miss off the most crucial piece of info is frankly poor journalism, which leaves readers unaware of Parliamentary procedure doubtless thinking that, if things go well in this 2nd reading stage, what Jim Dobbin is raising will come to pass. It won’t, not via this route.
