Police Reform Bill [Lords] — Schedule 4 — Powers exercisable by police civilians — 10 Jul 2002 at 20:34

Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.

I beg to move amendment No. 7, in page 145, line 15, leave out paragraph 2.

I do not intend to detain the House long. Those who have followed the proceedings of the Bill know that what the Minister says is more important than the amendment. The House knows that the power of detention to be given to civilians is highly controversial. The other place rejected it; it was re-inserted by the Government in Committee, and the amendment seeks to reverse that and restore the schedule to the state in which it returned to this place.

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The House divided: Ayes 54, Noes 294.
