Parliament: The House
Wednesday 28 July 1999
A VOLUNTARY moratorium should be slapped on organophosphate pesticides following new evidence of their harmful effects on the health of farmers who used them in sheep dip, the All-Party Organophosphate Pesticides Group urged.
THE LORDS rejected demands for life peers to be allowed a vote in elections for most of the 92 hereditary peers who will be kept during the interim period of the House's reform. Voting was 229 to 146, a majority of 83, during a debate on the Procedure Committee's proposals.
Labour and Tory frontbenches had agreed that 75 of the 92 should be elected to represent the existing 751 hereditaries.
Commons: Not sitting.
n Immigration and Asylum Bill, committee.
