Civil Defence (Grant) Bill — Clause 2 — General — 28 Jan 2002 at 18:57

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

In the vast amount of time that we have for Third Reading, I wish to point out that the Bill is a modest yet important measure, designed to re-establish good practice in the budget-making process in a small area of policy-the funding of emergency planning preparation in local authorities throughout England and Wales. It does not specify the sums of money to be allocated in the next financial year for civil defence grant; it is concerned solely with the mechanism and framework for doing so, allowing Ministers legally to set a grant in the first place.

Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:-

The House divided: Ayes 262, Noes 155.
