Select Committees — Accommodation and Works — Foreign Affairs — 16 Jul 2001 at 18:55

Kevin Brennan MP, Cardiff West voted with the majority (No).

The issue in this division was whether to approve the members of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee. The question was controversial due to the exclusion of Donald Anderson (MP for Swansea East) from the list, and those voting No were in effect insisting that he be included; those voting Aye were approving the Committee being set up without him.
