HC Deb 15 February 1837 vol 36 c567
Mr. Harvey

felt it his duty, as well to his constituents as to the House, to call attention to the irregularities which occurred in printing the lists of votes given by hon. Members. These mistakes and omissions were extremely to be deprecated, inasmuch as the whole value of the lists depended on their correctness, the constituents of hon. Members being anxious to ascertain exactly how they divided. He had attended in his place the whole of last evening, and had voted in favour of the motion of the hon. Member for East Cornwall, yet his name did not occur in the votes. He hoped that some means would be adopted to prevent the recurrence of these irregularities.

The Speaker

thought, that the irregularities which now occasionally occurred might be obviated if each hon. Member were to mention his own name as he came into the House on a division.

Mr. Harvey

could only say, that he had announced his name last night, most emphatically, both going out and coming in.
