House of Commons Disqualification (Amendment): Clause 7 — The alternative vote system: amendments (19 Oct 2010)

Stuart Bell: My hon. Friend is making his usual fluent speech with great confidence, but how can he say that this will provide a better system? I do not want to go too wide of the amendment, but how can it possibly be right that seven votes are required to end up with a majority of 50%? If there are seven candidates, people will vote seven times. How is that a fair result in a democracy?

House of Commons Disqualification (Amendment): Clause 7 — The alternative vote system: amendments (19 Oct 2010)

Stuart Bell: This intervention relates directly to the amendment, Ms Primarolo. I am grateful to Lord Campbell-Savours for pointing out to me that the alternative vote as described in "the Chope amendment" is Labour policy as recommended by the report of the Plant commission. It was described as the supplementary vote, and was devised by Lord Campbell-Savours and Professor Dunleavy. In fact, Labour policy...

Is it not the case that there would be two AV systems available to the people of London?

Written Answers — House of Commons Commission: Times of Sittings (13 Oct 2010)

Stuart Bell: An early decision was made to adapt the programme of repairs, maintenance works and refurbishments to take account of the shorter summer recess and the September sitting.

It was determined that it would not be cost effective or realistic to stop work while the House resumed in...

Royal Commission (London): Clause 1 — Referendum on the alternative vote system (12 Oct 2010)
