Deferred Division — Intellectual Property — 8 Feb 2006 at 18:42

Brooks Newmark MP, Braintree voted in the minority (No).

Those voting Aye agreed that the Artist's Resale Right Regulations 2006, laid before the House on 15 December 2005, be approved in accordance with the European Communities Act 1972 implenting the Directive 2001/84/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council.

A deferred division is one where the MPs vote by signing their names to a register rather than walking through the Aye and No lobbies. These are commonly used where the legislation requires that something be "approved by resolution of each House of Parliament".
