Civil Defence (Grant) Bill — 28 Nov 2001 at 20:22
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (No).
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.
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||113 (+2 tell)||0||70.1%|
|Lab||291 (+2 tell)||0||0||71.3%|
