was absent

The majority (in the House of Lords) voted for the Freedom of Information Act to apply[1] to any "body corporate" to which securities, property, rights and liabilities have been transfered by the Treasury from an "authorised UK deposit-taker", according to the powers of the Banking (Special Provisions) Bill.[2]

This requirement was removed by a subsequent vote in the House of Commons.[3]
