Political Parties and Elections Bill — Candidate for MP becoming own election agent does not disclose home address — 2 Mar 2009 at 21:00

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 but one, that if a Parliamentary candidate's election agent dies and he inherits the position,[1] his home address will not be disclosed.[2]

Issues as trivial as this don't normally get a division unless MPs are upset about how the procedures are being handled.[3][4]
