Question declared carried.

  Explanations under Standing Order 138(2A) as received from Members

Deputy Mick Barry and Deputy Paul Murphy voted against the Second Reading of the Sale of Illicit Goods Bill 2017 due to their concerns about putting an emphasis on criminalising buyers of goods rather than those making profits from goods which may be dangerous or used to finance other illegal activity. The Deputies are also concerned about the increased powers of arrest and search without warrant contained in the Bill which have the potential to be misused.
