Orders of the Day — New Clause 1 — Commencement — 15 Jan 2008 at 20:45
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
I can see that the Minister, if he ever gets bored with what he is doing, has a whole new potential career ahead of him-coming in here on a Friday morning and giving the hon. Member for Hendon (Mr. Dismore) a break. I am extremely grateful to my right hon. and hon. Friends for the self-restraint that they displayed, ensuring that we are able to debate new clause 1. I shall seek to be very brief and not to rehearse any of the arguments made in the stand part debate.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-
The Committee divided: Ayes 216, Noes 301.
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||160 (+2 tell)||0||83.5%|
|Lab||299 (+2 tell)||2||0||86.1%|
|Roger Godsiff||Birmingham, Sparkbrook and Small Heath||Lab||aye|
|Alan Simpson||Nottingham South||Lab||aye|
