Orders of the Day — New Clause 1 — Commencement — 15 Jan 2008 at 20:45

Nick Herbert MP, Arundel and South Downs voted in the minority (Aye).

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

I can see that the Minister, if he ever gets bored with what he is doing, has a whole new potential career ahead of him-coming in here on a Friday morning and giving the hon. Member for Hendon (Mr. Dismore) a break. I am extremely grateful to my right hon. and hon. Friends for the self-restraint that they displayed, ensuring that we are able to debate new clause 1. I shall seek to be very brief and not to rehearse any of the arguments made in the stand part debate.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-

The Committee divided: Ayes 216, Noes 301.
