Hunting Bill (Procedure) — 15 Sep 2004 at 15:10

Mr David Laws MP, Yeovil voted in the minority (Aye).

Aye voters supported an amendment to the procedure motion in order to allow MPs other than Government Ministers to propose amendments to the Bill immediately after its passage by the Commons. This would have allowed MPs to suggest to the House of Lords that the Parliament Act to be used to pass a different Bill to that passed by the House of Commons the previous session.
