Mr Stuart Bell MP, Middlesbrough voted with the majority (No).

I beg to move amendment No. 3,

in page 30, line 9, at end insert

I beg to move amendment No. 1, in page 41, line 5, leave out Clause 46.

Conservative Members are not against union modernisation, and we are certainly not against trade unions in fact, we are making a real effort to reach out to them. As I pointed out earlier, the Minister got wind of a meeting that my hon. Friend the Member for Eddisbury (Mr. O'Brien) and I had the other day with Mr. Brendan Barber. The meeting was constructive, and we have a great deal in common.

It being three hours after the commencement of proceedings on consideration of the Bill, Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Order [25 March], put forthwith the Question already proposed from the Chair.

The House divided: Ayes 157, Noes 315.
