Orders of the Day — New Clause 2 — Criminal Damage (Compensation) (Northern Ireland) order 1977 Amendment — 17 May 2006 at 16:15
John Penrose MP, Weston-Super-Mare voted in the minority (Aye).
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
The purpose of the new clause is to ensure that buildings to which artic1e 12 of the Rates (Capital Values, etc.) (Northern Ireland) Order 2006 applies come under subsection 4, as opposed to subsection 5, of the Criminal Damage (Compensation) (Northern Ireland) Order 1977. Community halls, Orange halls, halls used by the Ancient Order of Hibernians and other types of hall recently gained exemption from rates in Northern Ireland. That move was widely welcomed throughout the community as beneficial for local communities. It relieved a major financial burden for those who run such halls on both sides of the community: on the Unionist side and on the nationalist side. Under the new clause, those halls would also be subject to subsection 4 of the criminal damage compensation provisions, rather than subsection 5. That would bring them into line with agricultural premises.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 199, Noes 271.
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.
|Party||Majority (No)||Minority (Aye)||Both||Turnout|
|DUP||0||8 (+1 tell)||0||100.0%|
|Lab||270 (+2 tell)||0||0||77.1%|
|UUP||0||0 (+1 tell)||0||100.0%|
|Edward Davey||Kingston and Surbiton||LDem (front bench)||no|
