Foreign and Commonwealth Office — Clause 32 — Interpretation — 25 Oct 2011 at 21:58
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
It is now slightly more than a year since the introduction of the Bill, and it has undergone considerable scrutiny and review both within Parliament and outside. I believe that the Government have responded positively and openly to that scrutiny. Both in this House and in the other place, we have worked with parliamentarians across the party boundaries to make a number of important amendments. My noble Friend Lord Taylor of Holbeach rightly paid tribute to noble Lords for their efforts in improving the Bill, and those tributes can be extended to this House. This has been a constructive process.
Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
The House divided:
Ayes 300, Noes 224.
Votes by party, red entries are votes against the majority for that party.
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 (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||258 (+1 tell)||0||0||84.6%|
|Lab||0||216 (+2 tell)||0||84.5%|
|LDem||41 (+1 tell)||0||0||73.7%|
