House of Commons backs HIPs

Rebecca Atkinson - 16-May-2007

By Rebecca Atkinson

MPs have voted against annulling Home Information Pack regulations following a robust debate in the House of Commons.

The debate was brought to the House by a Conservative Party motion calling for HIP regulations to be annulled.

However, while 234 ministers voted for the motion to annul HIPs, the majority of 306 voted against it - a win for the government by 72 votes.

This means that the government's proposal to bring HIPs into force on June 1 will go ahead and plans to overturn it at the 11th hour have been foiled.

Don't the Lords have final say?

It still has to go through the House of Lords, where the government don't have a majority, so there's a good chance it'll be halted there. But there is always the Parliament Act, if Labour feel particularily bloody-minded.....!
