Government of Wales Bill (Programme) (No. 3) — Clause 7 — Candidates at general elections — 18 Jul 2006 at 18:45

Stuart Bell MP, Middlesbrough voted with the majority (Aye).

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

I believe that the package of amendments that we present today forms the basis of a cross-party consensus to achieve Royal Assent before the summer. The Government have listened to debates in this House and particularly in the House of Lords, where some major amendments were tabled. We have sought agreement and I believe that we now have that on the composition of Assembly Committees. The d'Hondt formula is now, instead of being up front, very much a fall-back option and on the back burner. It is there if needed, but we hope that it will not be needed. We have also made concessions on the name of the audit committee and, importantly for all Opposition parties and-frankly speaking-for ourselves, on the membership of the Assembly commission.

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

The House divided: Ayes 294, Noes 213.
