Orders of the Day — Clause 207 — CIL regulations: general — 24 Nov 2008 at 19:15
David Laws MP, Yeovil voted in the minority (No).
I beg to move, That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment.
The amendment would provide for a 60-day period during which either House may debate or pass a resolution on the draft community infrastructure levy regulations or refer the draft regulations to any Committee for a report. The Secretary of State must then respond to any debate, resolution or report, including by the other place, before this House may give approval to the regulations. The amendment followed an earlier Opposition Back-Bench amendment tabled in the other place that proposed that all CIL regulations should be subject to affirmative resolution of both Houses of Parliament. That amendment was rightly defeated and fell.
Question put, That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment:-
The House divided: Ayes 275, Noes 204.
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 (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||0||150 (+2 tell)||0||78.8%|
|Lab||274 (+2 tell)||0||0||78.9%|
