Political Parties and Elections Bill — Second Reading — 20 Oct 2008 at 21:43
John Penrose MP, Weston-Super-Mare voted in the minority (No).
Ordinarily, a Bill which is brought to the House so close to the end of a Parliamentary session would be doomed to fall off the timetable. However, a motion was proposed to carry it over to the next session.
Owing to the fact that an MP shouted "Object" when the Speaker proposed it, this motion had to be voted on before it would pass. The voting was deferred till later.
