Deferred divisions

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

Deferred divisions can be used with motions on statutory instruments and on certain types of motion which are not subject to amendment.

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