Deferred Divisions — voluntary reduction ("modulation") of direct farm support payments — 1 Nov 2006 at 19:51

Dennis Skinner MP, Bolsover voted in the minority (No).

That this House takes note of European Union Documents No. 10014/06, Draft Council Regulation laying down rules for voluntary modulation of direct payments provided for in Regulation (EC) No.1782/2003 establishing common rules for direct support schemes under the common agricultural policy and establishing certain support schemes for farmers, and amending Regulation (EC) No. 1290/2005; and welcomes the voluntary modulation proposal as a means of providing additional funding for rural development programmes in the United Kingdom which will help meet the government's commitment to sustainable rural development; but supports the government in wanting to ensure that the voluntary modulation rules operate in a way appropriate to the needs of the United Kingdom.

The House divided: Ayes 247, Noes 226.
