Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Special Case for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly — 9 Feb 2011 at 17:51

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes was absent

The majority of members of the House of Lords voted against requiring Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to be included in parliamentary constituencies which are wholly in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

The House of Lords was considering the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill[1]. The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment 25
  • Clause 11, page 11, line 10, at end insert-
  • "Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly
  • (1) All parts of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly must be included in constituencies which are wholly in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
  • (2) Rule 2 does not apply to these constituencies."

Rule 2 is the rule requiring the number of electors in a constituency to be between 95 and 105% of the mean number of electors.
