Counting votes on your behalf
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (No).
I beg to move, that the Bill be now read the Third time.
I should begin by congratulating my right hon. Friends the Members for Bolton, West (Ruth Kelly) and for Doncaster, Central (Ms Winterton), who until a fortnight ago were responsible for the Bill. Their tireless efforts to take account of all the views of all those with an interest in local transport means that we are debating what I believe to be an excellent Bill, and the amendments that the House has accepted today have improved it still further.
It being Ten o'clock, Mr. Speaker put forthwith the Question already proposed from the Chair, pursuant to Order [26 March].
The House divided: Ayes 313, Noes 143.
