Armed Forces (Pensions and Compensation) Bill — 15 Nov 2004 at 17:00

Mr Chris Grayling MP, Epsom and Ewell voted in the minority (No).

I beg to move, That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment.

It is ironic that the only remaining issue standing in the way of the Bill has nothing whatever to do with the new pensions and compensation arrangements. By my reckoning, this is the seventh time during the passage of the Bill that there has been a debate in either House on the issue of post-retirement benefits of widows and widowers. This House has twice voted resoundingly against adding a provision of the sort proposed to the Bill-on Report, on 6 May, by 252 to 132 votes, and on 20 October, the last time that this House discussed the issue, by 270 votes to 181.

Question put, That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment:-

The House divided: Ayes 260, Noes 160.
