Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill — New Clause "19" — Ministers to act reasonably — 15 May 2006 at 20:15
Jo Swinson MP, East Dunbartonshire voted in the minority (Aye).
In context, the beginning of the clause would have read.
A Minister of the Crown may by order under this section make any provision which he reasonably considers would serve the purpose... [of] removing or reducing any burden, or the overall burdens, resulting directly or indirectly for any person from any legislation.
The idea was to make the requirement less subjective, so that if the minister considered -- in his own mind -- that changing the law would remove a burden, but no one else in the country did, then it would not be reasonable.
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.
