§ Mr. PERCY THORNTON (Clapham)
and Mr. DALY (Monaghan, S.), the Tellers for the "Ayes" in the Division yesterday on the Motion for the Second Reading of the Vehicles (Lights) Bill, came to the Table, and the former stated that he and his co-Teller, the hon. Member for Monaghan, had erroneously reported to the Speaker that the numbers voting for the "Ayes" in the Division on the Motion for the Second Reading of the Vehicles (Lights) Bill were 40, in-stead of 44, as appeared in the Division List.
§ MR. SPEAKER
As the Tellers for the "Ayes" the agreed that there was a mistake, if the hon. Member will from his place move that the Journals of the House be corrected, I have no doubt that the House will agree to the Motion.
§ The hon. Members having returned to their places,
§ MR. THORNTON
moved that the Journals of the House be corrected accordingly. The hon. Member at the same time expressed his regret for the mistake for which he and his co-Teller were responsible. The error was the more to be regretted since it had caused Mr. Speaker to give an important ruling its to the course to be taken in case of an equality of votes, when in fact there had been no such equality.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Ordered, That the Clerk do correct the said error in the Journal of this House by stating the number of the Ayes to be 44 instead of 40.—(Mr. Thornton.)
