Human Reproductive Cloning Bill[Lords] — 29 Nov 2001 at 18:46
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
As the House will know, the other place passed the Bill without amendment on Monday.
I beg to move,
"That this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Human Reproductive Cloning Bill because it does not address the subject of therapeutic cloning; it does not prevent the creation of embryos by cell nuclear replacement; it does not define terms central to the Bill, such as 'fertilisation' and 'embryo'; and it fails to address the wider issues raised by the prospect of the creation of a cloned human being."
Question put, That the amendment be made:-
The House divided: Ayes 49, Noes 288.
Votes by party, red entries are votes against the majority for that party.
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 (No)||Minority (Aye)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||21||42 (+1 tell)||0||39.0%|
|Lab||244 (+2 tell)||2 (+1 tell)||0||60.6%|
