Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Curtail Debate and Make Decsion On Setting Number of MPs Between 500 and 650 — 17 Jan 2011 at 23:38

The majority of members of the House of Lords voted to bring the debate to a close and make a decision on setting the number of MPs to some number between 500 and 650.

The House of Lords was considering the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill[1].

The motion agreed in this vote was:

  • That the Question be now put

This brought the debate on a proposal to limit the number of MPs in the House of Commons to between 500 and 650 to a close, and prompted a vote on the substance of the proposal.

It is not possible to assign a position on the substantive matter on the basis of a member's vote in this divison.
