Commonwealth Development Corporation Bill — Interpretation: companies and shares. — 14 Jul 1999

Ms Jane Kennedy MP, Liverpool, Wavertree voted with the majority (Teller for the Noes).

I beg to move amendment No. 2, in page 10, line 31, leave out from 'nominee' to end of line 32.

Hon. Members who served on the Committee will recognise that the amendment has some similarities to the discussion that we had on clause stand part on what was then clause 24 and is now clause 25. Yesterday, I received a letter from the Secretary of State which attempted to elucidate the reasoning behind the original wording of the Bill. I thought that I might have struck a slightly curious position when I realised that neither the Ministers in Committee nor the civil servants--which was the crucial thing--quite knew why that part of the clause had been put in. I realise now that it was a slightly tortuous formulation.

14 Jul 1999 : Column 525

Question put, That the amendment be made:--

The House divided: Ayes 9, Noes 265.
