Work and Families Bill — New Clause 1 — Administration of statutory leave payments — 18 Jan 2006 at 14:15
John Prescott MP, Kingston upon Hull East did not vote.
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
Although we strongly support the purposes of the Bill as a package, we must recognise its impact on employers, especially small employers. It is incumbent on us all to ensure that its impact on employers is kept to a minimum. That has clearly been the Government's view, which they have expressed at various times.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 212, Noes 292.
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|
|Con||0||152 (+1 tell)||0||78.1%|
|Lab||291 (+2 tell)||0||0||83.0%|
|LDem||0||45 (+1 tell)||0||74.2%|
