Second Reading of UK 'Withdrawal from the European Convention' Bill postponed

The UK House of Commons was scheduled to consider the Private Member's 'Withdrawal from the European Convention of Human Rights and Removal of Alleged Terrorists' Bill next Friday. This has now been postponed until February of next year. 

Although this Bill is unlikely to be successful it will be interesting to see if it receives any Parliamentary debate and, if so, what the content of that debate is. 

Will the Bill provide the parliamentary platform for those MPs who, as Justice Secretary Chris Grayling put it two days ago, feel the Court's jurisprudence is now 'too far away from the original intentions of its creators to be acceptable'?
