Armed Forces (Pensions and Compensation) Bill — New Clause 3 — Burden of Proof — 6 May 2004 at 15:30

Mr Ian Taylor MP, Esher and Walton voted in the minority (Aye).

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

New clause 2 dealt with one of the key new issues in our proceedings and it was appropriate to debate it at some length. Other provisions were dealt with in Committee and the House should have an opportunity to debate them again, but I hope that we can make rather swifter progress than on new clause 2.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-

The House divided: Ayes 144, Noes 254.
