Criminal Defence Service Bill [Lords] — New Clause 1 — Power of Court to grant a representation order — 26 Jan 2006 at 15:00

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

I am grateful for the opportunity to present the new clause, having heard the earlier debate on the programme motion in which my right hon. Friend the Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Mr. Forth) put properly in context what are important measures in the Bill. The new clause is of great importance in terms both of principle and practice. It is its importance in terms of practice that I wish to concentrate on in the next few minutes.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-

The House divided: Ayes 145, Noes 234.
