Orders of the Day — New Clause 6 — Annual reports: parliamentary approval — 16 Jun 2006 at 12:45
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
It gives me great pleasure to move new clause 6 in this important debate. I hope, Mr. Deputy Speaker, that you will give me a chance to say a few words, because it is the first time that I have spoken on a Friday since the death of my dear friend, the late Eric Forth. I hope that you will forgive me if I join hon. Friends and other hon. Members who have paid tribute to him. They say that imitation is the best form of flattery, but I am conscious that I could never imitate the way in which my late right hon. Friend scrutinised Bills so effectively on a Friday.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 8, Noes 93.
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||2||6 (+2 tell)||0||5.1%|
|Lab||86 (+2 tell)||0||0||24.9%|
|Peter Bottomley||Worthing West||Con (front bench)||no|
|Edward Davey||Kingston and Surbiton||LDem (front bench)||aye|
|David Howarth||Cambridge||LDem (front bench)||aye|
