Closure Motions in United Kingdom

Closure motions Meaning, as used in the UK Parliament

A closure motion is a proposal that the Commons should stop debating and make a decision on the matter being discussed. It may be moved at any time during a debate if the Speaker allows it – but only once – and will only be successful if the majority in favour has at least 100 Members of the Parliament.
