Orders of the Day — Clause 6 — Transparency — 16 Jun 2006 at 14:06
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
I am delighted to be able to propose the Third Reading of this important Bill. I begin by thanking so many people who have done so much in order that the Bill could get this far and, we hope, further. I thank right hon. and hon. Members on both sides of the House, spokespersons for all the political parties, and many others. We have been encouraged by the public support shown by, for example, the aid agencies-there was an excellent letter in The Guardian yesterday, accompanied by a welcome leader-and the Churches, including the Church of Scotland and the Catholic Justice and Peace Commission. This week, Edinburgh's Cardinal Keith O'Brien paid a visit to Westminster; I welcome his support, also.
Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:-
The House divided: Ayes 115, Noes 0.
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 (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Lab||87 (+2 tell)||0 (+2 tell)||0||25.8%|
|George Mudie||Leeds East||Lab (minister)||tellno|
|Dan Norris||Wansdyke||Lab (minister)||tellno|
