European Parliamentary Elections Bill — Number of MEPs, electoral regions and electoral system — 27 Oct 1998
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (No).
Lords amendments considered.
Lords amendment: No. 1, in page 2, line 1, leave out ("a registered party, or").
I beg to move, That this House does disagree with the Lords in the said amendment.
With this, it will be convenient to discuss Lords amendments Nos. 2 to 4.
Question put, That this House does disagree with the Lords in the said amendment:--
The House divided: Ayes 338, Noes 131.
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 (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||0||128 (+2 tell)||0||80.2%|
|Lab||318 (+2 tell)||0||0||76.7%|
