Bill Presented — Sustainable Energy (Local Plans) Bill — Electoral Registration, Identification and Eligibility for Voting — 5 Apr 2011 at 13:45
I beg to move,
That leave be given to bring in a Bill to improve electoral registration; to introduce identification of voters and other measures to combat electoral fraud; to widen the franchise to allow all those over 18 legally resident in the United Kingdom to vote; to strengthen measures to control negative campaigns by third party groups and websites; and for connected purposes.
Question put (Standing Order No. 23).
The House divided:
Ayes 30, Noes 86.
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 (No)||Minority (Aye)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||70 (+2 tell)||0||0||23.5%|
|Lab||0||25 (+2 tell)||0||10.5%|
|Andrew George||St Ives||LDem||aye|
|Roger Williams||Brecon and Radnorshire||LDem||aye|
