Prayers — Autism Bill — 27 Feb 2009 at 13:26

George Osborne MP, Tatton did not vote.

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

I am delighted to have the opportunity to introduce the Autism Bill on the first available Friday for private Members' business. So many people are behind the measure that it feels like an Oscars moment-I have to say an awful lot of thank yous. It is the culmination of so much work that it is important to put on record my thanks and the thanks of all those whom the outcome of the process should benefit.

Question put forthwith, That the Question be now put.

The House divided: Ayes 131, Noes 25.
