On 25th April 2018 the House of Lords considered amendments to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill at its Report Stage. A vote took place on an amendment to the Bill, on ‘Henry VIII’ powers of Government, in which three bishops took part:
Lord Lisvane moved amendment 31, in clause 7, page 5, line 3, to leave out “the Minister considers appropriate” and insert “is necessary”.
The House divided: Contents: 349 | Not Contents: 221 | Result: Government Defeat
The Bishop of Chester, the Bishop of Ely, and the Bishop of Norwich voted Content.
