Tellers for the Noes :

Mr. Bob Cryer and

Mr. Dennis Skinner.

Question accordingly agreed to.

Motion made, and Question put,

That the draft Statutory Sick Pay (Small Employers' Relief) Amendment Regulations 1994, which were laid before this House on 10th February, be approved.-- [Mr. Andrew Mitchell.]

The House proceeded to a Division--

Mr. David Lidington (Aylesbury) (seated and covered) : On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I have always understood it to be the procedure in the House that votes had to follow the voices. Will you therefore rule on whether it is in order for Opposition Members who have called with their voices for compensation for VAT now to vote against that compensation, presumably on the ground that it is more than the 50p a week, which they regard as adequate?

Mr. Deputy Speaker : Voices on a Division are specific to that Division.

The House having divided : Ayes 227, Noes 52.
