Representation of the People (Reduction of Voting Age) — 29 Nov 2005 at 15:51

Nick Herbert MP, Arundel and South Downs 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.
