Section 3.2 of the Bill seems to suggest that if the EU offer a date other than the 31st of Europe then the PM is not obliged to accept the offer of an extension unless parliament have passed a motion tabled by a government minister to accept the extension.

Does this a Minister 'may' or a minister 'must' table a motion?

Well no, this clause kicks in if the EU offer an extension with an alternative date; this need only be accepted if parliament pass a motion tabled by a minister.

Like I said, I don't understand whether a minister is 'obliged'; nor how or who.
