Winston Churchill addresses the house of common chamber:

Winston: The three party leaders have agreed to serve either in the War Cabinet or in high executive office. "With this agreement in place, I now invite the House by the resolution which stands in my name......to record its approval and to declare its confidence in the new government.

What is the meaning of " stands in my name"?
