HC Deb 25 April 1961 vol 639 c371

Motion made, and Question put, That the Procedings on Government Business be exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of Standing Order No. 1 (Sittings of the House).—[Mr. Marples.]

The House proceeded to a Division, and Mr. SPEAKER stated that he thought the Ayes had it; and, on his decision being challenged, it appeared to him that the Division was unnecessarily claimed, and he accordingly called upon the Members who supported and who challenged his decision successively to rise in their places, and he declared the Ayes had it, one Member only who challenged his decision having stood up.
