Member wrongly counted as having voted

20.82A Member acquainted the House that his name had been included among those voting in two divisions on a previous day as being a Member disabled by infirmity but present in the precincts of the House (in accordance with the practice stated at para 20.62 ); but that he had not in fact been in the precincts. The Speaker thereupon directed that the numbers in those divisions should be corrected and certain subsequent proceedings were ordered to be null and void.1
