Health Bill — New Clause 5 — Smoke-free premises: exemptions — consideration — 14 Feb 2006 at 18:45

Andrew Robathan MP, Blaby voted in the minority (No).

Those voting Aye accepted for consideration a New Clause (first on the page) of the Health Bill. The technical term is that the clause was "read a Second time".

This New Clause outlined circumstances where the "appropriate national authority" (eg local government) could create regulated exceptions to the smoke-free law. These exceptions would be limited to:

(a) any premises where a person has his home, or is living whether permanently or temporarily (including hotels, care homes, and prisons and other places where a person may be detained),
(b) ... any premises in respect of which a club premises certificate (within the meaning of section 60 of the Licensing Act 2003 (c.17)) has effect.

In the next vote, Division 164, the MPs voted to delete part (b) of this clause under consideration. And in their third vote, Division 165, they voted to actually insert the clause into the Health Bill.

The technical transcript of this process can be found at the bottom of the page of the debate.
