Civil Defence (Grant) Bill — Clause 2 — General — 28 Jan 2002 at 18:57
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (No).
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
In the vast amount of time that we have for Third Reading, I wish to point out that the Bill is a modest yet important measure, designed to re-establish good practice in the budget-making process in a small area of policy-the funding of emergency planning preparation in local authorities throughout England and Wales. It does not specify the sums of money to be allocated in the next financial year for civil defence grant; it is concerned solely with the mechanism and framework for doing so, allowing Ministers legally to set a grant in the first place.
Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:-
The House divided: Ayes 262, Noes 155.
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||124 (+2 tell)||0||76.8%|
|Lab||262 (+2 tell)||0||0||64.5%|
