Children's Commissioner for Wales Bill (Programme) — 16 Jan 2001

Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.

I beg to move,

That the following provisions shall apply to the Children's Commissioner for Wales Bill:--

Standing Committee

the introduction of the Bill to allow a Children's Commissioner for Wales. NSPCC believes that the Bill could be significantly improved by a series of uncontroversial amendments. These amendments would assist the Commissioner to put the interests of children first, and act across all policy areas to ensure the best possible outcomes for children.

It being forty-five minutes after the commencement of proceedings on the motion, Madam Deputy Speaker , pursuant to Order [7 November], put forthwith the Question already proposed from the Chair.

Question put:--

The House divided: Ayes 280, Noes 67.
