Transplant of Human Organs Bill — 16 Mar 2001
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
Order for Second Reading read.
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
Official statistics show that, over the five years from 1995 to 1999, about 1,000 patients died in this country while on the waiting list for an organ transplant. The British Medical Association, to which I am indebted for its support and advice on this matter, would go beyond that and say that the figure understates the number of people who died for lack of an organ transplant operation. More people died who were not yet on the waiting list, and one must also consider the thousands of people who die because dialysis facilities are not available.
Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time:--
The House divided: Ayes 12, Noes 0.
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||6 (+1 tell)||0||0||4.4%|
|Lab||5 (+1 tell)||0 (+2 tell)||0||1.9%|
|Barry Gardiner||Brent North||Lab (minister)||tellno|
|John Heppell||Nottingham East||Lab||tellno|
