Cameron averts backbench rebellion in fuel price debate

PM avoids possible revolt by allowing backbench Tory MPs to back motion calling for planned fuel duty rises to be ditched.
The prime minister avoided a possible rebellion by opting only for a single-line whip when MPs vote on a motion later on Tuesday calling for the government to abandon January's proposed increase of 3p a litre and consider a "price stabilisation mechanism" to avoid crippling the economy.

"Single-line whip" tem a ver com métodos de manter a coesão partidária parlamentar:

A single-line whip is a guide to what the party's policy would indicate, and notification of when the vote is expected to take place; this is non-binding for attendance or voting.
A two-line whip, sometimes known as a double-line whip, is an instruction to attend and vote; partially binding for voting, attendance required unless prior permission given by the whip.
A three-line whip is a strict instruction to attend and vote, breach of which would normally have serious consequences. Permission not to attend may be given by the whip, but a serious reason is needed. Breach of a three-line whip can lead to expulsion from the parliamentary political group in extreme circumstances and may lead to expulsion from the party. Consequently, three-line whips are generally only issued on key issues, such as votes of confidence and supply. The nature of three-line whips and the potential punishments for revolt vary dramatically among parties and legislatures. Disobeying a three-line whip is by definition a newsworthy event, indicating as it does a potential mutiny; an example was the decision on 24 October 2011 by 81 Conservative, 1 Lib Dem and 19 Labour MP'S to vote against the Prime Minister, David Cameron, on the issue of a referendum on the UK's role in the European Union.[5]

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whip_%28politics%29

Neste contexto, "a motion" é uma moção, ou proposta deliberativa

O fato de Cameron insistir em só um "single-line whip" significa que membros de seu partido ficam livres para votar a favor ou contra a moção, independente da linha partidária
Henry, quer dizer que "single-line whip" é um método empregado que não obriga a frequência nem o voto do parlamentar ; "single-line whip" obriga só a frequência, enquanto o voto do parlamentar é facultativo e, por fim, "third-line whip" obriga tanto a frequência quanto o voto do parlamentar. É isso mesmo?

Yes, I think you have it just about right.

As far as I understand the Canadian parliamentary version, a "whipped vote" is by definition one where members of the party in power must attend and vote according to the stated position of the government. In Canada, party discipline is really strict when it comes to parliamentary votes. (See below for parties not in power.)

In Britain party discipline is more relaxed, with government members able to vote even against the government -- in some cases. The single-whip vote seems to be the case where, aside from letting members know the position of the government, there is freedom to attend (or not) and to vote with or in opposition to the government. In Canada, we would call this a "free vote."

The "doule-line whip" seems an oddity. Members are compelled to attend, but may be able to vote freely. It seems to me this may occur where the government knows they have the votes, so there's no need to be more strict. Or there may be other tactical reasons.

By the way, every party employs whips -- whether you are in government or oppostion. The Whip is a member selected by the party leadership to inform (or remind) members of the party's position, to organize the vote, and to enforce adherence (to the extent necessary) by its members.
