Question put, That the clause be added to the Bill.
The House proceeded to a Division.
Order. I am sure that this matter is of the greatest possible interest to Norman Lamb. He is engaged in an animated conversation with his right hon. Friend Tom Brake, but I feel sure that they are intensely interested in new clause 16 and the conduct of the democratic process relating thereto. Suitable interest is now demonstrated. Tellers for the Ayes are Mr David Linden and Mrs Marian Fellows. Tellers for the Noes are Wendy Morton and Mike Freer. Now those right hon. Members will be delighted to know that they can go back to talking to and listening, with rapt attention, to each other.
The House divided:
Ayes 36, Noes 316.
