Sukhendu Sekhar Roy intervenes during withdrawal of The National Identification Authority of India Bill, 2010
Sir, you have given a ruling that the Hon’ble Speaker is the ultimate authority and the Hon’ble Leader of the House has also clarified that the decision of the Hon’ble Speaker cannot be challenged. I am not challenging your decision.
The Article 110 in the Constitution of India and Sub Article III says and I quote if any question arises whether a Bill is a Money Bill or not, the decision of the Speaker of the House of the people therein shall be final. If the question arises, now otherwise, there is a letdown procedure, how a Bill should be treated as a Money Bill or not, Article 110 (a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f) and (g) have actually defined which Bills should be the Money Bills.
Therefore, even though, thereafter, the very question arises that whether this particular Bill comes under the purview of Article 110 (a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f) and (g) or not, then the decision of the Speaker will be final.
My question is, whether, any question arose before the Speaker or not.
