Hunting Bill — 15 Sep 2004 at 17:33
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (No).
The Aye voters supported the second reading of the Hunting Bill, knowing that it was identical to the Bill to which the House of Commons gave a Third Reading on 9 July 2003. (This was the criterion that would allow the Parliament Act to be used to pass the Bill.)
Question put, That the Bill be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 356, Noes 166.

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.

|Party||Majority (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||6||137 (+2 tell)||0||89.0%|
