Honours and Decorations — 22 Nov 2000

Mr Kenneth Clarke MP, Rushcliffe voted in the minority (No).

That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make provision about the award of certain honours and decorations; and for connected purposes.

The most outrageous feature about the Honours System was that it reflected the system of social stratification and snobbery in this country. One of my most embarrassing jobs as a Minister was to present

to railwaymen and other members of the lower orders

Question put, pursuant to Standing Order No. 23 (Motions for leave to bring in Bills and nomination of Select Committees at commencement of public business): --

The House divided: Ayes 153, Noes 58.
