Closure Motion — Timetable — Business of the House (Thursday) — University Tuiton Fee Caps — 8 Dec 2010 at 22:32

Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in favour of curtailing debate and moving to a vote on the time available for the House of Commons to debate the university tuition fee cap.

The majority of MPs voted to move to a vote on the amount of House of Commons time to be spent debating the university tuition fee cap.

MPs had spent from 19:36 to past 23.00 debating how much time ought be spent debating the university tuition fee cap.

During debate it was made clear that many MPs who wanted to contribute to the debate would be unable to do so if the Government's proposals to curtail the debate were accepted.

This division to close the debate and move to the vote was followed by the vote on the timetable[1].
