Police (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords] — 10 Feb 2003 at 21:41
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
The Bill provides for further provisions for policing in Northern Ireland and it is by no means an unimportant matter. It will implement the Patten commission and last year's review of policing. It has already gone through the other place, where their lordships considered it in great detail and made some useful amendments for us to consider. I am grateful, too, to the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee for its work on the Bill's consequences and matters.
Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 334, Noes 11.
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 (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|DUP||0||3 (+1 tell)||0||80.0%|
|Lab||306 (+2 tell)||0||0||75.1%|
|UUP||0||3 (+1 tell)||0||66.7%|
