Lord Wedderburn of Charlton voted with the majority (Not-Content).
The Chief Executive may pay to a specified body such sums as appear to the Chief Executive appropriate for enabling the body but excluding a regional body such as a Regional Development Agency to meet costs and expenses incurred, or to be incurred, by it in formulating its strategy or keeping it under review.Immediately prior to the vote Baroness Sharp of Guildford explained why she was pressing for a vote saying: "I am also left with many doubts about whether the old fashioned, top-down labour market planning with our single integrated strategies, our NINJA boards and all the rest of it, is the right way to do it. I would therefore like to test the opinion of the House." The result of the vote not accepting the amendment was: Contents 96; Not-Contents 136.
