Line of Route — 26 May 1999

I beg to move,

That this House approves the First Report from the Administration Committee on the Proposal to Re-open the Line of Route during the Summer Adjournment (HC 394).

I beg to move, To leave out from "House" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof:

"declines to approve the First Report from the Administration Committee (HC394) on the proposal to re-open the Line of Route during the Summer Adjournment until the full implications for entry into the Houses of Parliament at other times of the year, and other options for making these arrangements, are examined and costed."

Question put, That the amendment be made:--

The House divided: Ayes 119, Noes 36.
