Prayers — Crown Employment (Nationality) Bill — 12 Jun 2009 at 13:13
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
This is not my second time but my seventh attempt to introduce the Bill. Twice-once a couple of years ago and once last year-I got as far as Report, so I hope to make a little more progress this time. The Bill was originally a Government handout measure, but it seems to have become my own work. I am persistent about it because the genuine problems that it seeks to address remain.
The House having divided: Ayes 29, 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.
|Party||Majority (Aye)||Minority (No)||Both||Turnout|
