Having established themselves as a new parliamentary group, Change UK MPs needed to re-acquaint themselves with the House of Commons from the perspective of the small party benches. This chapter discusses how the majoritarian underpinnings of House of Commons’ procedures result in few guaranteed rights for small parties in the chamber, the committee rooms and across the parliamentary estate. It examines the impact of this on Change UK, using the parliamentary behaviour of Change UK as well as the experiences of other small parties to show how the lack of parliamentary rights can be a barrier to small party voices in the chamber.
