Orders of the Day — New Clause 1 — Financial provisions (disclosure of information) — 13 Dec 2007 at 15:00
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
The Bill was given considerable scrutiny in Committee and there were some consistent themes to it. The Government consistently referred to the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (Supplementary Provisions) Bill as the template, exemplar and the precedent for the Crossrail Bill and for many of its powers. The Minister told us frequently that the exceptional powers granted to the Government and the Secretary of State in this Bill were in many cases identical to those contained in that Bill.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The House divided: Ayes 133, Noes 236.
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||0||111 (+2 tell)||0||58.2%|
|Lab||235 (+2 tell)||0||0||67.3%|
