Crime (International Co-operation) Bill [Lords] — New Clause 1 — Driver Licensing Information — Clause 27 — Exercise of Powers by Others — 14 Oct 2003 at 17:00
I beg to move amendment No. 34, in page 15, line 35, leave out 'Treasury' and insert 'Secretary of State'.
This is a small but important matter. One reason why we tabled this amendment for consideration was to give the Government the opportunity to come back to the House. The hon. Member for Coventry, North-East (Mr. Ainsworth), who dealt with this issue previously as a Minister-he has been elevated to deputy Chief Whip-accepted that the existing brief did not clarify matters as well as he would have liked. In fact, he said:
Question put, That the amendment be made:-
The House divided: Ayes 191, Noes 300.
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||135 (+2 tell)||0||84.0%|
|Lab||299 (+2 tell)||0||0||73.6%|
