Political Parties and Elections Bill — To carry-over to next session — 22 Oct 2008 at 19:31

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

The majority of MPs voted to allow the Political Parties and Elections Bill to be carried over to the next Parliamentary session in case it ran out of time in the current session.

This was likely to be necessary as it had only just received its Second Reading.[1]
