Procedure of the House: Select Committee Report — 24 Jul 2002 at 22:04

Lord Davies of Coity voted with the majority (Not-Content).

moved Amendment No. 14:

Page 6, line 46, at end insert-

"except those bills originating in the House of Commons in which one or more clauses have not been considered in committee in that House. Preventing divisions on amendments to such clauses in committee removes a necessary means of establishing and refining the views of this House on matters of substance, and leads to extended debate on Report stage. The debate on Report is conducted under rules of procedure unsuited to the search for an accommodation of conflicting views which should precede the resort to a division. In practice the result is numerous and sometimes tortuous exchanges 'before the minister sits down'. If the result is misunderstanding, divisions may be called unnecessarily; if in doubt, they may be further deferred for consultation, adding to the number of divisions on third reading. Accordingly, we recommend that when a bill that has been sent to this House by the House of Commons has been considered by a Grand Committee, any clauses that have not been discussed in a committee of the Commons should be recommitted to a Committee of the Whole House of this House."

On Question, Whether the said amendment (No. 14) shall be agreed to?

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 61; Not-Contents, 98.
