Bill Presented — Private Pensions (Charges, Disclosure and Accountability) Bill — Backbench Business — [Un-allotted Day] — CPI/RPI Pensions Uprating — 1 Mar 2012 at 15:04
Bob Russell MP, Colchester voted in the minority (Aye).
I beg to move,
That this House notes that the e-petition entitled Public and Private Pension Increases-change from RPI to CPI attracted over 100,000 signatures very quickly, revealing a high level of concern about the Government’s decision to change the indexation for occupational pensions from the Retail Prices Index to the Consumer Price Index, which will mean that many people, both those retired and those yet to retire, will receive less in their pension payments than they were led to expect; and calls on the Government to reintroduce the RPI measure immediately.
The House divided:
Ayes 33, Noes 232.
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.
