Railways and Transport Safety Bill — New Clause 4 — Rail freight facilities grants and track access grants — 31 Mar 2003 at 20:30
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
It gives me great pleasure to speak to new clause 4, which calls for the reinstatement of rail freight facilities grants and track access grants. The Minister will be aware of the significant damage that is being caused by the suspension of the two sets of grants for the next financial year, 2003–04, especially to those who have been left high and dry without alternative means. Initially, the conservative estimate-
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 155, Noes 282.
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|
|Con||0||114 (+2 tell)||0||71.2%|
|Lab||282 (+2 tell)||0||0||69.3%|
