Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — New Clause 20 — Combination of polls — 25 Oct 2010 at 19:15
Edward Balls MP, Morley and Outwood did not vote.
The majority of MPs agreed to allow the referendum on the system for electing MPs to be combined with other elections and referendums being held on the same day.
Mark Harper MP had explained during a the debate prior to a previous division that the purpose of proposing New Clause 20 to the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill and its associated schedules, was:
- ... to provide that the referendum on the voting system can be combined with the eight different elections or local referendums across the UK that could take place on 5 May 2011.
The vote was technically on if the Clause ought to be added to the Bill. This vote was the last in a series on the provision which had included a vote on if the Clause ought be read a second time, and two votes on proposed amendments seeking to ensure separate polls in England and in Northern Ireland.
