Divisions (2015)

Request

What was the cost to design/build & implement a new voting system for the lobbies of the House of Commons to allow votes by English only MP's on laws in England only?

 

Response

The House Service already had plans to implement electronic recording of Divisions during this Parliament and therefore only a small change was required to support the new voting arrangements in the Government’s proposals for English Votes on English Laws, the cost of which is estimated at £1,700 in staff time.
