New Clause 1 — Appeals — 15 Oct 2004 at 13:30
John Prescott MP, Kingston upon Hull East did not vote.
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
The new clause would effectively introduce some control over the very open wording of clause 2. To show how wide-ranging that clause is, one could do worse than quote the promoter of the Bill in Committee on 7 June. It was all too brief a sitting on Monday 7 June. All that was said about clause 2 was:
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 1, Noes 21.
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||1 (+2 tell)||0||1.8%|
|Lab||17 (+2 tell)||0||0||4.7%|
