Mental Capacity Bill — Schedule 3 — Property and affairs: supplementary provisions — 14 Dec 2004 at 18:58

Mr Mark Hoban MP, Fareham voted in the minority (No).

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. I do so with great pleasure.

This is an important and ethical Bill. Our progress on it has been fast, and much of today's debate has pertained to that. I think it right that, to meet the concerns of Members throughout the House, the Lord Chancellor undertook to continue discussions and negotiations until the eleventh hour, and I am pleased that Members have felt able to support the Government in the Lobbies on the basis of that. I am glad that we have achieved the ends, even if the means were a little unusual for Parliament.

Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

The House divided: Ayes 354, Noes 118.
