Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill — Parliamentary oversight of police and prison service pay — rejected — 6 May 2008 at 19:45

Nick Herbert MP, Arundel and South Downs voted in the minority (No).

The majority of MPs voted to remove a clause[1] that had been inserted into the Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill[2] by the House of Lords,[3] which said:

  • The Home Secretary may not make regulations under the Police Act 1996[4] that differ from the recommendations of the Police Negotiation Board, or regulations under the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994[5] that differ from the recommendations of Prison Service Pay Review Board, unless they have been put to a vote by MPs.

According to reports, Labour backbenchers had planned a rebellion on this vote, but in the hurry to get this Bill passed before midnight, there was too much confusion and the rebels voted with the government by mistake. One Realising the error, Jeremy Corbyn negated his vote by voting both.[6]
