Local Government Bill — Before Clause 25 — 15 Sep 2003 at 18:00
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
I beg to move, That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment.
The amendment would insert a new clause at the beginning of part 2. The new clause says that part 2 can be applied only to an authority that has been identified by the Audit Commission as being at risk of overspending its total budget by more than 10 per cent.
Question put, That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment:-
The House divided: Ayes 256, Noes 144.
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||107 (+2 tell)||0||66.9%|
|Lab||256 (+2 tell)||0||0||63.1%|
