HC Deb 01 December 1948 vol 458 c2129
Mr. Speaker

I understand there was a mistake in the count in the recent Division.

Mr. Snow (Lord Commissioner of the Treasury)

I have to report that in announcing the figures I gave the total for the "Ayes" as 438. The figure should have been 338.

Mr. Speaker

My direction is that the figures shall be corrected and the number of 338 be recorded as the number in the "Aye" Lobby.

Mr. S. O. Davies (Merthyr)

May we who were in the "No" Lobby have an assurance that the 100 votes that have apparently disappeared from the "Ayes" did not belong to the "No" Lobby. I should like to get an assurance from the Tellers on that point.

Mr. Speaker

I think the correct figures will now be reported.
