Conduct Of The Secretary Of State For Wales (No. 5)

EDM number 1591 in 1993-94, proposed by Paul Murphy on 17/10/1994.

That this House condemns the decision of the Secretary of State for Wales to order a re-run of the opt-out ballot at West Monmouth School, Pontypool; notes that there was a substantial majority of parents opposed to opt-out in the first ballot; believes that the ballot has been held again because the Secretary of State disliked both the result and the successful arguments which won the day; regards his decision as an insult to the people of Pontypool, as well as a blow to democracy; and calls upon the Secretary of State to abandon this policy of ignoring the wishes of parents in such ballots.

This motion has been signed by a total of 37 MPs.
