Patrick McLoughlin MP, Derbyshire Dales voted against allowing those aged sixteen and seventeen to vote in the referendum on the UK's membership of the EU.

The majority of MPs taking part voted against allowing those aged sixteen and seventeen to vote in the referendum on the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union.

MPs were considering the European Union Referendum Bill[1]

The motion supported by the majority of MPs taking part in this vote was:

  • That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 1.

Lords amendment 1 stated[2]:

  • Page 2, line 7, at end insert "and persons who would be so entitled except for the fact that they will be aged 16 or 17 on the date on which the referendum is to be held".
