Orders of the Day — Electoral Administration Bill — 28 Jun 2006 at 15:15

Nick Herbert MP, Arundel and South Downs voted in the minority (No).

I beg to move, That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment.

The Government's approach throughout the passage of this Bill has been to seek consensus wherever possible. Indeed, in several areas we have achieved it. For example, in response to issues raised in this House and in another place, we have made amendments to the co-ordinated online record of electors, to the new duties on electoral registration officers, to the position of service voters with the support of my colleagues at the Ministry of Defence, and to anonymous registration and other things.

Question put, That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment:-

The House divided: Ayes 290, Noes 204.
