Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2006 — 9 Jan 2007 at 21:49

was absent

The Contents were voting against prohibiting discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation in provision of goods and services in Northern Ireland. The vote was moved by Democratic Unionist Lord Morrow to annul the Equality Act (sexual orientation) regulations (Northern Ireland)

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 68; Not-Contents, 199.

So the Contents lost the vote and legislation continues through Parliament
