Education Bill — [2nd Allotted Day] — New Clause 16 — Further education institution: hazardous material, &c. — 6 Feb 2002 at 23:59

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

I shall be brief, as I want to give one hon. Member from each of the main Opposition parties time to speak. It is a pleasure for me to begin this debate, but I shall start by offering some thanks to my ministerial team-my hon. Friends the Under–Secretary of State for Education and Skills, the Minister for School Standards and the Under–Secretary of State for Wales-who took the Bill through Standing Committee. I wish to thank also those Officers of the House who, as ever, have helped and guided us, and my officials in the Department.

It being Twelve o'clock, Mr. Deputy Speaker put forthwith the Question already proposed from the Chair, pursuant to Order [this day].

The House divided: Ayes 287, Noes 179.
