Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill — 7 Nov 2002 at 14:30

Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.

I beg to move, That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment.

I offer my thanks to Members on both sides of the House who have contributed to the debates and the improvements that have been made during the passage of the Bill through both Houses. It is a better Bill for the changes that have been made, and, on the whole, people have contributed very constructively to it. I do not pretend for a moment that I can satisfy every Hampstead liberal in every party, although I might go some way towards satisfying the shadow Home Secretary, the right hon. Member for West Dorset (Mr. Letwin), who was described by one of his former shadow Cabinet colleagues as a Hampstead liberal, which I am not sure was a term of endearment.

Question put, That the House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment:-

The House divided: Ayes 248, Noes 38.
