Criminal Defence Service Bill [Lords] — New Clause 1 — Power of Court to grant a representation order — 26 Jan 2006 at 15:00
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
I am grateful for the opportunity to present the new clause, having heard the earlier debate on the programme motion in which my right hon. Friend the Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Mr. Forth) put properly in context what are important measures in the Bill. The new clause is of great importance in terms both of principle and practice. It is its importance in terms of practice that I wish to concentrate on in the next few minutes.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 145, Noes 234.
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||116 (+2 tell)||0||60.2%|
|Lab||233 (+2 tell)||0||0||66.6%|
