Legal Services Bill [ Lords] (Programme) (No. 3) — Clause 15 — Carrying on of a reserved legal activity: employers and employees etc — 24 Oct 2007 at 13:00

Rob Marris MP, Wolverhampton South West voted with the majority (Aye).

I beg to move, That this House does not insist on Commons amendment No. 4 to which the Lords have disagreed, disagrees to Lords amendment No. 4A proposed in lieu of that amendment and proposes amendments (a) to (c) in lieu of Lords amendment No. 4A.

The House will be aware that although this House agreed with the Government amendments to clause 15 that apply to trade unions, they were not accepted in the other place. Their lordships disagreed and substituted different words that limited the exemption that trade unions would have from the need to be regulated as entities. In our original wording, trade unions were to be exempted in respect of any reserved legal services provided by virtue of membership. In the Lords amendment, the exemption applied only to what we might call a limited range of employment-related services.

Question put :-

The House divided: Ayes 301, Noes 145.
