Police Reform Bill [Lords] — Schedule 4 — Powers exercisable by police civilians — 10 Jul 2002 at 20:34
I beg to move amendment No. 7, in page 145, line 15, leave out paragraph 2.
I do not intend to detain the House long. Those who have followed the proceedings of the Bill know that what the Minister says is more important than the amendment. The House knows that the power of detention to be given to civilians is highly controversial. The other place rejected it; it was re-inserted by the Government in Committee, and the amendment seeks to reverse that and restore the schedule to the state in which it returned to this place.
Question put, That the amendment be made:-
The House divided: Ayes 54, Noes 294.
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 (No)||Minority (Aye)||Both||Turnout|
|Lab||287 (+2 tell)||0||0||70.5%|
|LDem||0||46 (+2 tell)||0||90.6%|
