Finance Bill — [2nd Allotted Day] — Schedule 37 — Aggregates levy amendments — 4 Jul 2002 at 18:52

Mr Stuart Bell MP, Middlesbrough voted with the majority (Aye).

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

Five years ago, the Government's first Budget set out our objectives, our plans for reform, and the disciplines to achieve economic stability, higher employment and sustained prosperity. On 17 April, my right hon. Friend the Chancellor was able to report in his Budget speech that Britain had enjoyed the lowest inflation and the lowest interest rates for 40 years. For the first time for half a century, unemployment in Britain is lower than in America, Japan and Europe. In the year just ended, Britain had the highest growth of any of our major competitors.

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

The House divided: Ayes 277, Noes 109.
