City of London (Ward Elections) Bill — Schedule 3 — Repeals — 15 Apr 2002 at 19:52

Mark Hoban MP, Fareham voted with the majority (Aye).

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

It is often said that the House does not discharge its task of scrutinising legislation adequately. However, this Bill has been debated for more than 25 hours and over a period of three and a half years. In the course of those debates, it could be said that more or less every permutation and combination of circumstances that might disclose grounds for objection to the Bill have been articulated. I do not propose to detain the House by trawling through the issues, but I want to touch on one or two that have been raised from time to time.

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

The House divided: Ayes 278, Noes 30.
