Daylight Saving Bill — Conclude Second Reading debate — 3 Dec 2010 at 13:07

The majority of MPs voted to conclude the Second Reading debate over the Daylight Savings Bill. This is a Private Members' Bill sponsored by Rebecca Harris[1]

This vote came before the actual vote to pass the Second Reading (from where it would be reviewed by a public bill committee.

There is evidence of a filibuster over this Bill owing to problems of delay in the No lobby, and the fact that a division was made necessary by someone shouting "Object",[3] and thus requiring at least 100 MPs being present on a Friday to vote in favour of ending the debate.[4]
