CHANGES IN THE MODE OF TAKING DivisioNS IN THE HOUSE OF
AFTER the Whitsuntide adjournment, 1906, the following changes in the method of taking divisions in the House of Commons were introduced experimentally. On a division being called the Speaker or the Chairinan, as the case may be, gives the order “clear the lobby” instead of the order that “strangers must withdraw” (see p. 356). The two-minute sand-glass is turned pursuant to standing order No. 28 and the tellers' doors in both lobbies are locked. As soon as the sand has run out the Speaker again puts the question, and the ages and noes respectively declare themselves. The Speaker directs the ayes to go into the right lobby and the noes into the left lobby, and appoints two tellers for each party (see p. 361). The tellers at once proceed to their doors, which are then unlocked, and the counting begins at once. At the expiration of six minutes from the time at which the sandglass was first turned, the Speaker or Chairman directs the doors leading from the house into the division lobbies to be locked and they remain locked until the announcement of the numbers from the chair (see p. 362).
Under this arrangement the doors of the house are not locked in accordance with the directions of standing order No. 29, but remain open throughout the division by the Speaker's permission. The house is not cleared (see p. 357), and accordingly it is no longer necessary for a member who has heard the question put the second time, but does not desire to vote, to leave the house (see pp. 357 and 358, n. 1).
Members who have voted in both lobbies in the same division havo been allowed on the following day to state as a matter of personal explanation (see p. 319) in which lobby they intended to vote, and the numbers of the division have been directed to be corrected accordingly.”

PROCEDURE ON LORDS' AMENDMENTS.
No. 267 of the Rules, Orders, &c., of the House of Commons, dated 4th June, 1891, is reproduced here as it affords such a clear and effective statement of the procedure of the house on Lords' amendments :
“When a bill is returned from the Lords with amendments, the amendments are read and agreed to, or agreed to with amendments, or disagreed to, or the further consideration thereof put off for three or six months, or the bill ordered to be laid aside.
"On the consideration of a bill returned by the Lords, with amendments, no amendment can be proposed to a Lords' amendment, save an amendment strictly relevant thereto; nor can an amendment be moved to the bill, unless the amendment be relevant to or consequent upon either the acceptance or the rejection of a Lords' amendment.
“When this house has disagreed to a Lords' amendment, the Lords may return the bill with further amendments thereto, consequent upon the rejection of their amendment, or with amendments proposed as alternative to the amendments disagreed to by this house.
“When the Lords return the bill with a message that they insist on an amendment to which this house has disagreed, this house may either agree, with or without amendment, to the amendment to which it had previously disagreed, and make, if necessary, a consequential amendment to the bill; or may postpone the consideration of the Lords' amendments for six months; or discharge the order thereon, and withdraw the bill; or order the Lords' amendments to be laid
