Railways and Transport Safety Bill — New Clause 2 — Prescribed limits — 31 Mar 2003 at 20:00
John Prescott MP, Kingston upon Hull East did not vote.
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
After a discussion about the death of so many people on our roads due to snow and ice, it is appropriate to turn to another cause of death on our roads: drink-driving. I preface my remarks by making recognition of the work carried out by Governments past and present, by Departments, local authorities, the police and the media-through publicity-to reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries caused by drink-driving. It would be wrong not to acknowledge the work that is already being done.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 32, Noes 282.
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|
|Lab||281 (+2 tell)||0||0||69.0%|
|LDem||0||23 (+2 tell)||0||47.2%|
