Business of the House — 3 Apr 2001
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
I beg to move,
That, in respect of the Elections Bill, notices of Amendments, new Clauses and new Schedules to be moved in Committee may be accepted by the Clerks at the Table before the Bill has been read a second time.
The House divided: Ayes 325, Noes 11.
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.
What is Turnout? This is measured against the total membership of the party at the time of the vote.
|Party||Majority (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||0||7 (+2 tell)||0||5.6%|
|Lab||291 (+2 tell)||0||0||70.3%|
