Daylight Saving Bill — Second Reading — 3 Dec 2010 at 13:07

Patrick McLoughlin MP, Derbyshire Dales did not vote.

The majority of MPs voted to consider advancing time by one hour for all, or part of, the year.

The majority of MPs voted to pass the Daylight Savings Bill through its Second Reading, which means it now goes on to a public bill committee.

This is a Private Members' Bill sponsored by Rebecca Harris.[1]

This vote immediately followed the motion to close the debate.

There is evidence of a filibuster over this Bill owing to problems of delays in the No lobby.[2]

The lengthy debate gets lively when the Scots start speaking out at around here.
