Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Clause 1 — Referendum on the alternative vote system — 15 Feb 2011 at 20:46
Richard Drax MP, South Dorset voted in the minority (No).
This vote is whether to remove Lord Rooker's amendment that:
"If less than 40% of the electorate vote in the referendum, the result shall not be binding."which was added in the Lords.
Votes "for" are to remove this constraint. Votes "against" are to keep this constraint.---
I beg to move, That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 1.
The House divided: Ayes 317, Noes 247.
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.
