Child Trust Funds Bill — Clause 10 — Further Contributions by Inland Revenue — 13 May 2004 at 14:30
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (Aye).
I beg to move amendment (a) thereto.
Lords amendment No. 7 is rather curious and a little troubling. It gives the Government the power to make payments to children in custody. Those children would, as I understand it, otherwise be excluded because no one is in receipt of child benefit on their behalf.
Question put, That the amendment be made-
The House divided: Ayes 92, Noes 263.
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||90 (+2 tell)||0||56.4%|
|Lab||235 (+2 tell)||0||0||58.1%|
