Hunting Bill (Programme) — 20 Dec 2000
I beg to move,
That the following provisions shall apply to the Hunting Bill--
1. Clauses 1 to 4 and any New Clauses shall be committed to a Committee of the whole House.
2. The remainder of the Bill shall be committed to a Standing Committee.
3.--(1) Proceedings in Committee of the whole House shall be completed in one allotted day.
(2) An allotted day is one on which the Bill is put down as first Government Order of the Day.
4. Sessional Order B (Programming Committees) made by the House on 7th November shall not apply to the Bill.
5. Proceedings in the Standing Committee shall (unless previously concluded) be brought to a conclusion on Thursday 8th February 2001.
The louder he talked of his honour, the faster we counted our spoons.
I beg to move amendment (a), leave out "one allotted day" and insert "two allotted days."
If the amendment is accepted by the Government, it will make only slightly more palatable a ruthless guillotine motion that is rotten in principle and malicious in its detail. The House is considering a guillotine motion that displays the typical arrogance of this most dictatorial of all Governments; a Government who have decided on Second Reading what the timetable will be in Committee for an option that has not yet been voted on.
It being forty-five minutes after the commencement of proceedings on the motion, MR. DEPUTY SPEAKER, pursuant to Order [7 November], put forthwith the Question necessary for the disposal of proceedings to be concluded at that hour.
Question put, That the amendment be made:--
The House divided: Ayes 135, Noes 319.
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.
What is Turnout? This is measured against the total membership of the party at the time of the vote.
|Party||Majority (No)||Minority (Aye)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||0||100 (+2 tell)||0||63.8%|
|Lab||319 (+2 tell)||2||0||77.6%|
|Mrs Llin Golding||Newcastle-under-Lyme||Lab (minister)||aye|
|Barry Sheerman||Huddersfield||Lab (minister)||aye|
