Freedom of Information Bill — Remaining Lords amendments — 27 Nov 2000
John Prescott MP, Kingston upon Hull East did not vote.
The Majority voted to agree to all remaining Lords amendments to the Freedom of Information Bill. These weren't listed or further discussed, so it's difficult for anyone to know what this vote was about. The work had to be rushed through before midnight due to the "guillotine motion" passed earlier in the day.
-  Freedom of Information Bill, October 2000, House of Lords.
-  Mr. Mike O'Brien MP, 27 November 2000, Hansard.
-  Division 354, 27 November 2000, House of Commons.
