Adoption Bill — 30 Mar 2001
Order for Second Reading read.
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
Thank you, Mr. Speaker, for kindly selecting this Bill for Second Reading. I am sure that hon. Members are aware that we debated the Government's Adoption and Children Bill on Monday, but they might be interested in the process that ensued after that debate and the reason for having this debate today.
Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time:--
The House proceeded to a Division.
The House having divided: Ayes 14, 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||13 (+2 tell)||0||0||9.4%|
|Lab||0||0 (+2 tell)||0||0.5%|
