Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Clause 11 — permissible variation in population in a constituency — 15 Feb 2011 at 18:47

David Nuttall MP, Bury North voted not to increase the permitted variation from the norm in the number of voters in each parliamentary constituency to 7.5% from the 5% previously proposed.

A majority of MPs voted against Lords amendment 19 to the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill, which would have increased the allowable variation in the number of voters in each constituency to 7.5% of the norm, instead of the 5% proposed in the Bill.

This amendment is closely linked to Lords amendment 16.
