The Assembly Divided...

Members vote aye or no to Bills at the end of each stage. Usually the voice vote decides the outcome, but members may want their vote recorded when there has been heated debate. To ask for a recorded vote, members stand up after the Speaker announces the results of the voice vote. If three or more members stand, the division bells are rung, summoning any members who are not in the Chamber. They have ten minutes to arrive and then the vote is recorded member by member.
