Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill — New Clause "14" — Veto by specified number of MPs — 16 May 2006 at 20:00

Theresa May MP, Maidenhead did not vote.

Those voting No rejected a proposed new clause for the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill that would have said:

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.

This is an example of an objective measure of the word "controversial".
