School Meals and Nutrition Bill — 25 Feb 2005 at 13:01
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
Those voting aye were agreeing in principle with the School Meals and Nutrition Bill, which is a private members bill (ie not put forward by the Government).
The vote was lost because only 19 MPs (including tellers?) took part in the division, which meant it didn't achieve the quorum 40 required to make a decision. If there had been time, this Bill could have been reintroduced later in the Parliamentary session.
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.
