Labour Vote Against Benefit Uprating

EDM number 634 in 1993-94, proposed by Anthony Durant on 17/02/1994.

That this House notes that 53 honourable and Right honourable Labour Members voted against the Orders to uprate pensions and social security benefits and to introduce the package of extra help with VAT on fuel; and recognises that if they had been successful, millions of pensioners and less well-off people would have been deprived of the support voted through by Conservative honourable Members.

This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs.
