Lord Chancellor's Department — 28 Jan 2003 at 20:14

I beg to move,

That Mr A. J. Beith, Peter Bottomley, Mr James Clappison, Ross Cranston, Mrs Ann Cryer, Mr Jim Cunningham, Mr Hilton Dawson, Mr Mark Field, Mr Clive Soley, Keith Vaz and Dr Alan Whitehead be members of the Committee on the Lord Chancellor's Department.

I beg to move, To leave out "Mr. A. J. Beith" and insert "Lady Hermon".

I begin by assuring the right hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mr. Beith) that there is nothing personal in this. Our amendment is purely political, moved in order to address the continuing exclusion of the minority parties from the vast majority of Select Committees.

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The House divided: Ayes 62, Noes 233.
