Deferred divisions

In the Commons, MPs sometimes vote on a series of motions using ballot papers at a convenient time (currently from 12.30pm on Wednesdays) instead of holding each division immediately at the end of a debate.  These are known as deferred divisions.

The result of a deferred division can be found in the Votes and Proceedings for the day it took place.
