Case for a Civil Service Bill — 21 Jan 2004 at 15:46
Charles Hendry MP, Wealden voted in the minority (Aye).
I beg to move,
That this House calls on the Government to introduce a Civil Service Bill in this parliamentary session.
I beg to move, To leave out from "House" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof:
"welcomes the Government's commitment, in its response to the Ninth Report of the Committee on Standards in Public Life, to publish a draft Civil Service Bill for consultation; acknowledges the contribution made to the discussion of these issues in recent days by the Public Administration Select Committee; notes the failure of any previous Conservative Government to legislate for the Civil Service; and welcomes this Government's commitment to reforming and modernising the Civil Service to ensure that it continues to deliver a first class service to the people of this country."
Question put, That the original words stand part of the Question:-
The House divided: Ayes 209, Noes 328.
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||146 (+2 tell)||0||90.8%|
|Lab||328 (+2 tell)||0||0||80.9%|
