Health and Social Care Bill — 14 Feb 2001
Order for Third Reading read.
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
Had the hon. Member for Gainsborough (Mr. Leigh) been here earlier, he would have heard his colleagues argue that an hour was far too long to spend on Third Reading of a Bill of this sort. The House would welcome a little bit of co-ordination by Opposition Members.
On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I beg to move the amendment standing in the name of Liberal Democrat Members.
I cannot allow that on a point of order. The hon. Member for Woodspring (Dr. Fox) is on his feet and has the Floor.
It being Ten o'clock, Mr. Speaker put the Question already proposed from the Chair, pursuant to Order [7 November and this day].
Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:--
The House divided: Ayes 310, Noes 168.
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 (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||0||125 (+2 tell)||0||79.4%|
|Lab||308 (+2 tell)||0||0||74.3%|
