Health Bill — New Clause 5 — Smoke-free premises: exemptions — consideration — 14 Feb 2006 at 18:45
John Prescott MP, Kingston upon Hull East voted in the minority (No).
This New Clause outlined circumstances where the "appropriate national authority" (eg local government) could create regulated exceptions to the smoke-free law. These exceptions would be limited to:
(a) any premises where a person has his home, or is living whether permanently or temporarily (including hotels, care homes, and prisons and other places where a person may be detained),
(b) ... any premises in respect of which a club premises certificate (within the meaning of section 60 of the Licensing Act 2003 (c.17)) has effect.
In the next vote, Division 164, the MPs voted to delete part (b) of this clause under consideration. And in their third vote, Division 165, they voted to actually insert the clause into the Health Bill.
The technical transcript of this process can be found at the bottom of the page of the debate.
