Children's Commissioner for Wales Bill (Programme) — 16 Jan 2001
Mr James Gray MP, North Wiltshire voted in the minority (Teller for the Noes).
I beg to move,
That the following provisions shall apply to the Children's Commissioner for Wales Bill:--
the introduction of the Bill to allow a Children's Commissioner for Wales. NSPCC believes that the Bill could be significantly improved by a series of uncontroversial amendments. These amendments would assist the Commissioner to put the interests of children first, and act across all policy areas to ensure the best possible outcomes for children.
It being forty-five minutes after the commencement of proceedings on the motion, Madam Deputy Speaker , pursuant to Order [7 November], put forthwith the Question already proposed from the Chair.
The House divided: Ayes 280, Noes 67.
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.
