Greg Mulholland MP, Leeds North West voted in the minority (No).

The majority of MPs voted to approve the Immigration (Biometric Registration) (Pilot) Regulations 2008 which sets out, under the powers of the UK Borders Act 2007, which categories of visitors must be issued with a biometric immigration document.

These regulations were replaced by their permanent version by a vote in Parliament on 9 July 2008.
