Greater London Authority (Referendum) Bill — Functions of the Local Government Commission — 24 Nov 1997

Clause 3 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

I beg to move amendment No. 31, in clause 4, page 2, line 26, after 'shall', insert

'subject to subsection (1A) below,'.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Clauses 4 and 5 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Question proposed, That the clause stand part of the Bill.

It would be unusual, even if there had not been a by-election in Winchester, for someone not to raise constitutional points about the clause's impropriety and unsuitability. My hon. Friends and I shall ask the Committee to reject the clause. If it is accepted, no matter what goes wrong in the election there can be no challenge to the number of ballot papers counted or votes cast.

Question put and agreed to .

Clause 6 ordered to stand part of the Bill .

I beg to move amendment No. 8, in page 3, line 15, at beginning insert

'Subject to section ( London Electoral Convention ) below,'.

Question put, That the amendment be made:--

The Committee divided: Ayes 33, Noes 298.
