Lee Scott EDM on Jewish and Muslim Issues
An early day motion (EDM), in the Westminster system, is a motion,expressed as a single sentence, tabled by Members of Parliament for debate “on an early day” (namely an unspecific date in the future). Controversial EDMs won’t be signed by Government Ministers, PPS or the Speaker of the House of Commons and very few are debated on the floor of the Chamber of the House. EDMs remain open for signature for the duration of the parliamentary session.
EDMs can be tabled on matters ranging from trivial, even funny, topics to those of epoch-making importance
So why even though there are an estimated 18,000 Muslims in the Ilford North Constituancy that practically all the EDM that concern Muslims were not signed by Scott, whereas practically all the EDM’s that effect Jewish issues where signed by Lee Scott.
Which begs the question. Does he represent US?
