Orders of the Day — Local Transport Bill [ Lords] — 26 Mar 2008 at 18:44
Dai Havard MP, Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney voted with the majority (No).
I beg to move,
That this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Local Transport Bill <[i> Lords] because it encourages the introduction of Quality Contract schemes to reregulate bus networks, thus preventing free competition between bus operators, undermining service quality for passengers and jeopardising the partnerships between operators and local authorities that have helped to improve service quality; because it fails to give due weight to the importance of consultation and local consent when local congestion charging schemes are considered; and because it transfers revenue-raising powers to the National Assembly for Wales without proper constitutional justification and in doing so allows Wales to be used as a test bed for the Government's untried, untested national road pricing scheme.
The House having divided: Ayes 156, Noes 347.
Votes by party, red entries are votes against the majority for that party.
What is Tell? '+1 tell' means that in addition one member of that party was a teller for that division lobby.
What are Boths? An MP can vote both aye and no in the same division. The boths page explains this.
What is Turnout? This is measured against the total membership of the party at the time of the vote.
|Party||Majority (No)||Minority (Aye)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||0||151 (+2 tell)||0||79.7%|
|Lab||296 (+2 tell)||0||0||84.7%|
