City of London (Ward Elections) Bill — 14 Jul 1999

Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted with the majority (Aye).

The issue in this division was whether to bring an end to debate, and move to a vote on an amendment to the City of London (Ward Elections) Bill. Those voting Aye were voting to allow the Bill to proceed while those voting No were trying to hold it up. The Bill was a Private Bill and this division was therefore unwhipped.
