Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill — Clause 1 — NHS foundation trusts — 19 Nov 2003 at 16:45
The majority of MPs voted in favour of the introduction of NHS foundation trusts; bodies with a degree of financial and managerial independence from the Department of Health.
The Aye-voters successfully rejected a Lords wrecking amendment.
The motion being voted on was:
- That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment:
The Lords amendment in question, No. 1, stated leave out clause 1
Clause 1 defines "NHS foundation trusts".
Shortly after the division there were several points of order noting that Scottish MPs' votes were required to pass the bill, but that the bill only affects England and Wales.
