Greater London Authority Bill — Time of ordinary elections — 4 Nov 1999

Lords amendment disagreed to.

Lords amendment: No. 2, in page 3, line 20, at end insert--

("(d) for or in connection with enabling electors to vote in the poll at such polling stations or other places as may be prescribed, at such times as may be prescribed, on such one or more days preceding the date specified in or provided under subsection (1) above for the poll as may be specified in the order.

( ) The provision that may be made by an order under paragraph (d) of subsection (4) above includes provision for such enactments or statutory instruments as may be specified in the order to have effect with such modifications as may be so specified.

( ) In this section "prescribed" means specified in, or determined in accordance with, an order under this section.")

I beg to move, That this House agrees with the Lords in the said amendment.

Mr. Deputy Speaker:

With this, it will be convenient to discuss Lords amendments Nos. 3 to 5, 7 to 11 and 586 to 611.

The House is therefore being asked today to pass legislation before the Government have even finished considering responses to the outline proposals.

Question put, That this House agrees with the Lords in the said amendment:--

The House divided: Ayes 322, Noes 119.
