Honours and Decorations — 22 Nov 2000
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make provision about the award of certain honours and decorations; and for connected purposes.
The most outrageous feature about the Honours System was that it reflected the system of social stratification and snobbery in this country. One of my most embarrassing jobs as a Minister was to present
to railwaymen and other members of the lower orders
Question put, pursuant to Standing Order No. 23 (Motions for leave to bring in Bills and nomination of Select Committees at commencement of public business): --
The House divided: Ayes 153, Noes 58.
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.
