Licensing Bill [Lords] — New Clause 7 — Allowing Children Into Licensed Premises — 16 Jun 2003 at 25:12
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
I am sure that Members on both sides of the House recognise the contribution of my hon. Friend the Member for Pontypridd (Dr. Howells) to our proceedings. His elevation to the post of Minister of State, Department of Transport in the recent reshuffle means that this was his last appearance as Minister for Tourism, Film and Broadcasting. That gives rise to an important question: does a swan song constitute a licensable activity?
Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:-
The House divided: Ayes 227, Noes 121.
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 (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||0||96 (+2 tell)||0||60.1%|
|Lab||227 (+2 tell)||3||0||56.6%|
|John Martin McDonnell||Hayes and Harlington||Lab||no|
|Alan Simpson||Nottingham South||Lab||no|
