Representation of the People (Reduction of Voting Age) — 29 Nov 2005 at 15:51
Jim Dowd MP, Lewisham West voted against considering a Parliamentary Bill to reduce the voting age to 16
Those voting No were against the introduction of a Parliamentary Bill to reduce the voting age in all Parliamentary, local government, and European parliamentary elections to 16.
There is therefore no text of the Bill which can be linked to.

What is Tell? '+1 tell' means that in addition one member of that party was a teller for that division lobby.
