Government of Wales Bill (Programme) (No. 3) — Clause 103 — Proposal for referendum by Assembly — 18 Jul 2006 at 20:30

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.

This amendment removes the Secretary of State's discretion over how and when to lay a draft referendum Order in Council before Parliament if the Assembly passed such a request on a two-thirds vote. The purpose of clause 103 is to ensure that the Secretary of State responds to a request from the Assembly within a proper time scale. It is right that such a request cannot simply be sat upon.

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

The House divided: Ayes 294, Noes 189.
