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.
