Election of Speaker — 23 Oct 2000

Mr Martin Bell MP, Tatton voted with the majority (No).

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

My hon. Friend the Member for Blaydon (Mr. McWilliam) became an MP in 1979. I arrived rather later, in 1992, and bumped into him almost immediately.

Question put, That the amendment be made:--

The House divided: Ayes 30, Noes 309.
