Embryology Bill

Asked what the Prime Minister’s view was on the three-line whip on attendance this evening at the House and whether or not this made it a free vote, the PMS said it was a free vote and MP’s could vote as they wished.

Asked if Cabinet had discussed the debates on the Embryology Bill given that it went quite well for the Government, the PMS said not that he could recall. It was a free vote yesterday, so it was a victory for those people who were supportive of the position that won the vote. When Geoff Hoon talked about parliamentary business, he was talking more about future parliamentary business.
