John Prescott MP, Kingston upon Hull East did not vote.
No order [can] be made under Part 1 [if] within the period defined in section 13(7), more than 10% of the members of the House of Commons have signified to the Speaker in writing that they object to the use of the Act for purpose of introducing the order in question, and [those] members... are not all members of the same party.
