Good.

Don't know what one is and link doesn't enlighten me at all.

This was only a 10 minute rule, private member's bill - usually brought up to highlight a Member's area of interest. These are highly unlikely to get anywhere without Government sharing that interest and scheduling time to take the Bill through the required stages for it to become law. The fact it's been withdrawn would indicate that either the proposing Member realised he was on a hiding to nowhere OR (and this is rare) he has been persuaded to drop it by Government showing support in private and promising to bring something like this forward themselves... I don't know either way but just wanted to share that Private Member's Bills rarely get anywhere.
