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.
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.
