Loans to Ireland Bill (Allocation of Time) — Loans to Ireland Bill — 15 Dec 2010 at 16:05
Nick Herbert MP, Arundel and South Downs voted with the majority (Aye).
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
Two weeks ago I told the House that it was my intention to ask for authority to make a bilateral loan to Ireland as part of the multinational assistance programme for that country. I said that I judged it to be in our national interest, given our country's close economic, financial and political connections to the Irish Republic, to be ready to help, and I want to thank all parts of this House for agreeing with that judgment.
Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
