The problem is that 99.99% of these motions to propose a new law are not written by people who understand parliamentary procedure and drafting of valid motions.

passing a new law may require altering existing law or striking down old laws - the "conseqensials" get this wrong and you will lose.

and there the whole question of time tabling if the government can control when the motion is time tabled it might fall off if time runs out if they schedule it at the end of session for example.
