European Parliamentary and Local Elections (Pilots) Bill — Lords amendment 1D — 24 Mar 2004 at 17:30

Mr Fraser Kemp MP, Houghton and Washington East voted with the majority (Teller for the Ayes).

I beg to move, That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 1D to Commons amendment 1C.

The amendment would abrogate the powers of this House of Commons and the Government to decide which regions to select for all-postal voting in the forthcoming local and European elections in June, and pass that decision to the Electoral Commission. It is yet another attempt by the other place to overturn the will of this House of Commons. It would be a nonsensical position for this House to adopt.

Question put, That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 1D to Commons amendment 1C:-

The House divided: Ayes 308, Noes 185.
