SHRI RAJESH PILOT : Sir, the whole House is here. During Shri Sangmaji's tenure, when he was the Speaker, the Business Advisory Committee decided that for raising issues under the `Zero Hour' you have to give notice in writing. But I think, the whole spirit of the `Zero Hour' is killed by giving a notice. I think, this practice should be stopped. Through notice, you can raise many issues under many motions.

SHRI J.S. BRAR : Then, we will never get an opportunity to speak during Zero Hour.

SHRI RAJESH PILOT (DAUSA): During Zero Hour, matters should be raised by Members when they feel like, and notices should not be binding on them. If you want to keep this `Zero Hour' practice with notice, then it becomes a motion. This is not correct. Then, you go through motions. `Zero Hour' is not to be regularised through motions... (Interruptions)

SEVERAL HON. MEMBERS: No, Sir... (Interruptions)

SHRI TARIT BARAN TOPDAR (BARRACKPORE): This should continue as it is. By giving prior notice, every Member gets a chance to speak... (Interruptions)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Not Recorded.

SHRI BASU DEB ACHARIA (BANKURA): There are many important issues to be raised. But nobody should be allowed to speak without giving notice. ... (Interruptions)

SHRI J.S. BRAR : You have given me an opportunity to speak. Therefore, please let me speak.... (Interruptions)

MR. SPEAKER: Yesterday also hon. Members have discussed something in the Leaders meeting. The Leaders are also suggesting some more modifications now during Zero Hour on how to regulate the Zero Hour. Today we will take a unanimous decision on how to regulate the Zero Hour. We have already received the notices today. Now Shri J. S. Brar will speak.
