Orders of the Day — New Clause 1 — Collective enfranchisement by leaseholders — 29 Apr 2008 at 18:45
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (Aye).
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
New clause 1 is an attempt to rectify a small but aggravating injustice in the stamp duty land tax. It is an injustice against the thousands of people who own the leasehold of their property and wish to acquire the freehold under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993. It is a technical problem recognised by hon. Members on both sides of the Committee, and we hope to provide a solution to it this evening.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The Committee divided: Ayes 130, Noes 321.
Votes by party, red entries are votes against the majority for that party.
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||123 (+2 tell)||0||65.1%|
|Lab||283 (+2 tell)||0||0||81.2%|
