Civil Defence (Grant) Bill — 28 Nov 2001 at 20:22

Mr Charles Hendry MP, Wealden voted in the minority (Teller for the Noes).

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

The Bill is designed to apply the standard disciplines that cover public expenditure to a relatively small part of local government spending-the sum used to finance the administration of local authority emergency planning units totalling less than £20 million this financial year. It is important to stress at the outset that the Bill does not set the level of spending, but provides a mechanism for determining grants and the fair and equitable distribution of expenditure.

Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time:-

The House divided: Ayes 292, Noes 159.
