Child Trust Funds Bill — 15 Dec 2003 at 19:51
David Laws MP, Yeovil voted in the minority (No).
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second Time.
I am delighted to bring this Bill before the House. In doing so, the Government are fulfilling a manifesto commitment. The child trust fund represents a new and imaginative way of encouraging children and their parents to save for the future. We will ensure that, in future, all children will have the opportunities that are currently taken for granted by only a few.
Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 297, Noes 39.
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.
