Northern Ireland Arms Decommissioning (Amendment) Bill — 17 Dec 2001 at 21:45

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

I intend to begin by setting out what the Bill does. I shall then explain the political context for the Bill and why it is necessary to introduce it at this time.

I beg to move, To leave out from "That" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof:

"this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Bill because it provides for such an extended deadline for decommissioning which it does not believe will be conducive to the completion as soon as possible of the process which is already more than a year overdue."

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The House divided: Ayes 151, Noes 342.
