Prayers — Fuel Poverty Bill — 20 Mar 2009 at 13:14

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

I have religiously put in for the private Member's Bill ballot for the best part of 12 years, but I have never appeared anywhere on the list until this year, when I came second. That is perseverance rewarded.

Question put forthwith, That the Question be now put.

The House divided: Ayes 89, Noes 2.
