I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

We now move from a young, thrusting, radical amendment to a young, thrusting, radical new clause. It is designed to give respectability and credibility to the method of selecting mayoral candidates and would provide that all those involved in the selection process, of whatever political party, are there to represent their party's members and are not imposed from the centre.

4 May 1999 : Column 732

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:--

The House divided: Ayes 128, Noes 285.
