European Parliamentary Elections Bill — 10 Nov 1998
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (No).
Lords Reasons for insisting on certain of their amendments to which the Commons have disagreed, considered.
The Lords insist on their Amendments in page 2, lines 2, 15 and 18, to which the Commons have disagreed, for the following Reason:
Because electors should be able to vote for the individual party candidate of their choice.
I beg to move, That this House insists on its disagreement with the Lords in their amendments.
Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Michael J. Martin):
With this it will be convenient to discuss also the Government amendment in lieu of the Lords amendments, in page 3, line 46, at end insert--
across Northern Ireland, I assure the House that I would have found and advanced such a compromise."--[ Official Report , 21 March 1996; Vol. 274, c. 500-02.]
Question put, That this House insists on its disagreement with the Lords in their amendments:--
The House divided: Ayes 307, Noes 125.

What is Tell? '+1 tell' means that in addition one member of that party was a teller for that division lobby.
What are Boths? An MP can vote both aye and no in the same division. The boths page explains this.

|Party||Majority (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||0||121 (+2 tell)||0||75.9%|
