House of Commons Commission — 2 Feb 2000

This vote was on the motion:

That Sir Peter Lloyd be discharged from the House of Commons Commission and Mr. Eric Forth be appointed a member of the Commission under the House of Commons (Administration) Act 1978.

Eric Forth was a colourful and sometimes controversial member of the House, and those voting No were exercising a protest against his appointment.

The House divided: Ayes 87, Noes 108.
