Fixed Term Parlaiments Bill — Clause 3 — Dissolution of Parliament — 18 Jan 2011 at 22:00
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
I am grateful to Members who have taken part in debates on the Bill, in particular the hon. Member for Nottingham North (Mr Allen), who sadly is not in his place, and members of the Political and Constitutional Reform Committee, who have been forensic in their scrutiny.
The House divided: Ayes 320, Noes 234.
Votes by party, red entries are votes against the majority for that party.
What is Tell? '+1 tell' means that in addition one member of that party was a teller for that division lobby.
What are Boths? An MP can vote both aye and no in the same division. The boths page explains this.
What is Turnout? This is measured against the total membership of the party at the time of the vote.
|Party||Majority (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||262 (+1 tell)||6||0||87.9%|
|Lab||0||215 (+2 tell)||0||84.1%|
|LDem||50 (+1 tell)||0||0||89.5%|
|David Nuttall||Bury North||Con||no|
|Andrew Turner||Isle of Wight||Con||no|
