Bill Presented — Palliative Care Bill — 24 Apr 2009 at 13:16
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (Aye).
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
Like many other hon. Members, I have been through the experience of losing a much loved relative in the sometimes undignified setting of a hospital ward. So my motivation in proposing this Bill is to secure a better quality of life for the final days of people's natural lives.
Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
The House divided: Ayes 13, Noes 26.
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||10 (+2 tell)||0||6.2%|
|Lab||26 (+2 tell)||0||0||8.0%|
