Clause 4 — Commencement and retrospective effect — 16 Oct 2009 at 12:01
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
I am very pleased that the Bill has been able to get this far. Perhaps it is more than a coincidence that today is the 175th anniversary of the great fire of Westminster. If there had been asbestos in the building, we might all be suffering from pleural plaques, but it might not have burned down.
Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
The House divided: Ayes 51, Noes 0.
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||7||0 (+2 tell)||0||4.7%|
|Lab||40 (+2 tell)||0||0||12.0%|
|Christopher Chope||Christchurch||Con (front bench)||tellno|
