Election of Speaker — 23 Oct 2000

Mr Frank Field MP, Birkenhead voted in the minority (Aye).

I beg to move, as an amendment to the Question, to leave out "Mr. Michael J. Martin" and insert instead thereof "Mr. Menzies Campbell".

In proposing the name of Ming Campbell, I realise that I am breaking the tradition by nominating a member of a minority party. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Gorton (Mr. Kaufman) pointed out in his letter to The Times last week, however, there is no sufficiently clear tradition to tie the House to any course of action.

Question put, That the amendment be made:--

The House divided: Ayes 98, Noes 381.
