Here's where you debate an amend a Bill. It's simple.

To amend a bill, propose an amendment by saying "Mr Speaker, I move that the Bill be amended as follows..."

The government is then required to respond to the amendment, either accepting or rejecting it. If the amendment is rejected then that is the end of it unless at least one MP in a governing party indicates that they support the amendment and specifically requests a division, in which case we will - on a case by case basis - pause debate on the Bill and hold a vote in the division lobbies.

Bills spend four days in debate.
