Order of the Day
(The), in parliamentary parlance, is applied to the
prearranged agenda of “Private Members' Bills.” On Tuesdays these bills
always stand after “notices of motions.” (See Previous Question.)
To move for the Order of the Day
is a proposal to set aside a government measure on a private
members' day (Tuesday), and proceed to the prearranged agenda. If the
motion is carried, the agenda must be proceeded with, unless a motion
“to adjourn” is carried.
