Children Bill [Lords] — New Clause 12 — Reasonable punishment — 2 Nov 2004 at 17:45
Jim Cousins MP, Newcastle upon Tyne Central voted in the minority (Aye).
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
Those voting Aye in this division were seeking to outlaw reasonable chastisement (e.g. gentle smacking) of children.
The House divided: Ayes 75, Noes 424.
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|
|Lab||264 (+2 tell)||47 (+2 tell)||0||77.4%|
