Drugs (Sentencing and Commission of Inquiry) Bill — 25 Feb 2005 at 11:21
The issue in this division was whether to approve the principle of the Drugs (Sentencing and Commission of Inquiry) Bill. Those voting Aye were supporting the Bill in principle. The Bill would have set up a Commission of Inquiry into the laws on Cannabis, specifically on whether the reclassification of Cannabis as a Class C drug should be revoked, and also would have created a mandatory minimum sentence of seven years' imprisonment for anyone convicted for a third time of supplying Class A drugs.
In the event, fewer than 40 MPs participated in the vote and so the issue was not decided at this division.
As this division was on a Private Members' Bill, no whips were applied.
