Terrorism (Northern Ireland) Bill — New Clause 1 — Mode of Trial on Indictment — 30 Nov 2005 at 14:00
John Prescott MP, Kingston upon Hull East voted with the majority (No).
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
I congratulate the Government on their sensible handling of the timetable for this legislation. This is one occasion on which there has been no issue of process, but there has been an issue of content. For that reason, I am sure that we can dispense with the business fairly quickly today, even though three important issues are up for debate. The first is the issue of the mode of trial.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 46, Noes 370.
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.
|Party||Majority (No)||Minority (Aye)||Both||Turnout|
|Lab||250 (+2 tell)||0||0||71.2%|
|LDem||0||41 (+2 tell)||0||69.4%|
|Douglas Hogg||Sleaford and North Hykeham||Con||aye|
