Prayers — Clause 1 — Duties of the Secretary of State — 9 Sep 2011 at 13:15
I beg to move amendment 3, page 1, line 2, leave out ‘publishing draft’ and insert ‘presenting’.
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
Let me start my remarks by reassuring Opposition Members about a number of things that are not in the Bill and that-surprise, surprise-both the BBC and The Guardian occasionally misreport things. I want to reassure everyone here that I am a whole-hearted supporter of the Union. I have referred before in the Chamber to the memory of my late, lamented grandmother, Flora McLean McLeod Morison, from the Isle of Skye, and I think that that will go a long way towards reassuring everybody what a strong supporter I am of the Union, being a physical embodiment of it myself.
Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
The House divided:
Ayes 24, Noes 40.
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|
