Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [ Lords] — 1 Jun 2009 at 21:41
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
Every one of us understands the degree of public anger at politics and politicians and the pressing need to reform our democracy, but it is vital that that anger be channelled into practical reforms that reconnect people with their political system and allow citizens to exercise more influence and more control. The Bill is practical and focused, and it takes us a few steps further forward on our journey.
Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
The House divided: Ayes 276, Noes 154.
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 (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
|Con||0||133 (+2 tell)||0||69.9%|
|Lab||269 (+2 tell)||0||1||77.7%|
|David Taylor||North West Leicestershire||Lab (minister)||both|
