Lords Amendment — 5 Nov 2002 at 18:43

Lord Sawyer voted with the majority (Not-Content).

The majority voted to allow non-married couples to adopt. It did this by accepting the Commons disagreement to a previous Lords Amendment (made in the vote on 16th October 2002), by rejecting an amendment that would have insisted on the previous amendment.
