Prevention of Terrorism Bill — Weak Sunset Clause — 10 Mar 2005 at 40:33

Elfyn Llwyd MP, Meirionnydd Nant Conwy did not vote.

The Aye-voters reaffirmed their vote in Division 133 and made some sort of compromise on the Sunset clause. I think.

This was the final vote held for what became the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, which you can now read online. Since this was arguing for amendments held in the Lords, it had officially passed the House of Commons already and there was no further vote needed to pass it here.

So, it seems, the structure of the passage of a Bill is: 2nd reading (which introduces it), committee stage (which makes changes), 3rd reading (which passes it), followed by lord's amendments and further commons amendments (which makes changes to something that was already passed).
