Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill — 10 Jan 2005 at 21:35
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (Aye).
The Aye-voters failed to change the motion for debate to:
This House declines to give the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill a Second Reading because the Bill focuses predominantly on urban issues while neglecting rural areas, creates another unnecessary quango and brings local authorities into conflict with police and other authorities which currently exercise powers in relation to abandoned vehicles and stray dogs; because the Bill introduces provisions, such as clearing up chewing gum as extensively and frequently as litter, which will be prohibitively expensive yet fail to take account of producer responsibility; and because the Bill contains many unnecessary provisions which would not be needed if existing legislation were properly enforced.
The Bill is now sent to be scrutinized by Standing Committee G after which it returns to the debating chamber for a further vote before it then goes to the House of Lords prior to it becoming Law.
