( ) In this section "prescribed" means specified in, or determined in accordance with, an order under this section.")
I beg to move, That this House agrees with the Lords in the said amendment.
Mr. Deputy Speaker:
With this, it will be convenient to discuss Lords amendments Nos. 3 to 5, 7 to 11 and 586 to 611.
The House is therefore being asked today to pass legislation before the Government have even finished considering responses to the outline proposals.
Question put, That this House agrees with the Lords in the said amendment:--
The House divided: Ayes 322, Noes 119.
Votes by party, red entries are votes against the majority for that party.
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.
What is Turnout? This is measured against the total membership of the party at the time of the vote.
|Party||Majority (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||0||118 (+2 tell)||0||74.5%|
|Lab||300 (+2 tell)||0||0||72.6%|
