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.
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||210 (+2 tell)||1||0||52.0%|
|PC||0||2 (+1 tell)||0||75.0%|
|SNP||0||4 (+1 tell)||0||100.0%|
|Peter Bottomley||Worthing West||Con (front bench)||no|
|George Young||North West Hampshire||Con (front bench)||no|
