Allocation of time motions (guillotine motions

Allocation of time motions are sometimes known as 'guillotine' motions

An allocation of time motion, or 'guillotine', is to ensure that certain stages of a Bill in Parliament are completed by a certain date or within a fixed number of sittings.  They have largely been replaced by programme motions which set out a timetable for a Bill in the House of Commons at the start of its consideration.  Guillotine motions are not used in the House of Lords and can be controversial as the effect of such measures by the government can severely limit the time MPs have to debate measures.
