HC Deb 08 December 1971 vol 827 c313W
44. Sir R. Turton

asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will now implement the recommendation of the Select Committee on Procedure in their Third Report Session 1966–67 that Tellers in a Division should be appointed as soon as their names are handed in and be permitted to begin counting before the two minutes has elapsed.

Mr. Whitelaw

I am afraid that the objections raised to this proposal in 1967 still apply.
