Criminal Justice Bill — 2 Apr 2003 at 13:45
David Laws MP, Yeovil voted in the minority (Aye).
I beg to move amendment No. 52, in page 4, line 30, leave out Clause 5.
Clause 5 amends the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 in an important way by increasing from 24 to 36 hours the period for which a person may be detained without charge at a police station while a case against him is investigated in the case of any arrestable offence. That is a very substantial change to current practice proposed by the Government.
Question put, That the amendment be made:-
The House divided: Ayes 163, Noes 285.
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||0||112 (+2 tell)||0||69.9%|
|Lab||285 (+2 tell)||0||0||70.0%|
