European Parliamentary and Local Elections (Pilots) Bill — Clause 4 — Electoral Commission report — 16 Dec 2003 at 18:53
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
Many hon. Members have contributed significantly during the Bill's passage through the House, especially by effective scrutiny in Committee. It is also worth commenting briefly on several other initiatives as we conclude the consideration of the Bill. First, I wish to put on record my appreciation of all members of the Committee, especially those who have also contributed to the debate today, for generating useful ideas and assisting the development of policy.
Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:-
The House divided: Ayes 304, Noes 166.
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||119 (+1 tell)||0||73.6%|
|Independent Ulster Unionist||0||2||0||66.7%|
|Lab||295 (+2 tell)||1||0||73.0%|
|LDem||1||42 (+1 tell)||0||81.5%|
|Mr Denzil Davies||Llanelli||Lab||no|
|Charles Kennedy||Ross, Skye and Inverness West||LDem (front bench)||aye|
