Political Parties and Elections Bill — Home address form must be correct — 2 Mar 2009 at 21:00

Greg Mulholland MP, Leeds North West voted in the minority (No).

The majority of MPs voted in favour of the minor amendment to the 'Political Parties and Elections Bill', consequential to the changes to the rules for Parliamentary elections made in the previous division, that a person is guilty of a corrupt practice if he makes a statement on his home address form which he knows to be false.[1]

This is an unusually trivial matter to call a division,[2] but there was some disquiet among some of the MPs.[3]
