Chancellor of the Exchequer — Consideration of The Economy — 6 Dec 2011 at 21:50

Owen Smith MP, Pontypridd voted to express a view that the House of Commons had not considered the economy.

The majority of MPs voted to express a view that the House of Commons had not considered the economy.

The motion rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • That this House
  • has considered the matter of the economy.

The motion appears to have been moved as a means to enable debate on the 2011 autumn statement.

The motion was moved by the Chancellor George Osborne and the vote is notable as a defeat of a motion moved by a senior member of the Government.

The vote on motion does not appear to have been treated by MPs as an opportunity to express support, or otherwise, of the content of the autumn statement.
