Tobacco Advertising and Promotion Bill [Lords] — New Clause 2 — Commission of body to study the effects of Act — 21 Oct 2002 at 17:45
John Prescott MP, Kingston upon Hull East did not vote.
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
The new clause would require the Secretary of State to commission a reputable and appropriate qualified body to carry out a rolling study of the effects of the legislation on the prevalence of smoking in the UK population, with particular reference to those between the ages of 16 and 19, and those under 16, as well as its effects on market share. Furthermore, a report should be made to the House after three years and annually thereafter.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 120, Noes 329.
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 (No)||Minority (Aye)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||1||120 (+2 tell)||0||75.5%|
|Lab||285 (+2 tell)||0||0||70.0%|
|Bob Spink||Castle Point||Con||no|
