Counting votes on your behalf
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
New clause 2 dealt with one of the key new issues in our proceedings and it was appropriate to debate it at some length. Other provisions were dealt with in Committee and the House should have an opportunity to debate them again, but I hope that we can make rather swifter progress than on new clause 2.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 144, Noes 254.
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||113 (+2 tell)||0||70.6%|
|Lab||254 (+2 tell)||1||0||63.0%|
|Rachel Squire||Dunfermline West||Lab||aye|
