Licensing Bill [Lords] — New Clause 7 — Allowing Children Into Licensed Premises — 16 Jun 2003 at 23:52
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
The new clause would replace a clause that was voted through in the other place, but taken out by the Government in Committee in this place. It concerns allowing children into licensed premises. As the Bill stands, clauses 143 to 150 deal with children and alcohol, but nowhere in any of those clauses do the Government see fit to restrict access by children of any age. In fact, the presumption is that children will be allowed on to licensed premises unless the licensee sets out in his operating schedule reasons why he cannot accommodate that and makes the position clear to the licensing authority.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 106, Noes 258.
Votes by party, red entries are votes against the majority for that party.
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||102 (+2 tell)||0||63.8%|
|Lab||240 (+2 tell)||0||0||59.0%|
