Prevention of Terrorism Bill — Weak Sunset Clause — 10 Mar 2005 at 40:33
Robert Smith MP, West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine voted in the minority (No).
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).
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.
What is Turnout? This is measured against the total membership of the party at the time of the vote.
