Gambling Bill — 2nd reading — 1 Nov 2004 at 21:59

Mr Paul Clark MP, Gillingham voted with the majority (Teller for the Ayes).

The aye-voters passed the 'Second Reading' of the Gambling Bill and ensured that it moved on to the next stage. The main thrust of the bill was to deregulate the gambling industry and allow for a number of 'supercasinos' to be opened, though it also tightened up some regulations, mostly in uncontentious ways.

A 'no' vote in this division would have had exactly the same effect as an 'aye' vote in the reasoned amendment that preceded it, namely to kill the bill, but without sending the message that it was being killed for the specific reasons stated in that amendment.

The House divided: Ayes 286, Noes 212.
