Delegated Legislation — Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill — 7 May 2008 at 20:30

I beg to move, That this House does not insist on its disagreement with the Lords in their amendments Nos. 9, 301 and 327.

We had a full debate yesterday on the question of suspended sentence orders, and there was some discussion between the main parties and the Liberal Democrats on this matter. Obviously, I regret the fact that the other place has voted in the way that it has, but there is clearly a big disagreement between the two Houses.

I beg to move, That this House does not insist on its disagreement with the Lords in their amendment No. 285.

I am pleased that at least we will have an offence of inciting hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation on the statute book. That is very positive, and everybody in the House should be pleased about it, as I am. It is a necessary provision.

Question put, That this House does not insist on its disagreement with the Lords in their amendment:-

The House divided: Ayes 324, Noes 46.
