Orders of the Day — Clause 19 — power to award foundation degrees — 12 Jul 2007 at 15:15

I beg to move amendment No. 23, page 15, line 22, after 'England', insert 'or Wales'.

We move to one of the parts of the Bill that deals with the Principality of Wales. I see the new Under-Secretary of State for Wales on the Treasury Bench. I am sad to say that I saw off the last one, the hon. Member for Carmarthen, West and South Pembrokeshire (Nick Ainger), following the grilling that I gave him in Committee, but I am pleased to see that he is present and we look forward to hearing from him later, perhaps. He made a positive contribution, but despite that, now joins us in a Back-Bench capacity.

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The House divided: Ayes 126, Noes 254.
