Finance Bill — [1st Allotted Day] — Clause 5 — Rates — 27 Apr 2004 at 17:15
David Ruffley MP, Bury St Edmunds voted in the minority (Teller for the Ayes).
I beg to move amendment No. 2, in page 4, line 9, leave out "£0.0664" and insert "£0.0435".
I have no interest to declare-so far as I am aware-beyond having a very large rural constituency with a coastline. Many of the farmers and boat-owners who live there will be hit by the red diesel fuel hike.
Question put, That the amendment be made:-
The Committee divided: Ayes 166, Noes 294.
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||105 (+2 tell)||0||65.6%|
|Lab||294 (+2 tell)||0||0||72.5%|
