Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued) | Lords debates
17 January 2011, 10:00 pm

I am grateful to my noble friend. I wanted to suggest that he might direct the noble Lord, Lord Phillips, who asked for evidence of the partisan nature of this legislation, to the website of Mr Mark Field-a prominent Member of the other place on the Conservative Benches-where he made it explicitly clear. I think that this is still up there; it was a few days ago. It says quite clearly that the party managers in the other place were going around seeking support for this legislation precisely because it would be to their partisan advantage.
