[Sir Michael Lord in the Chair] — Clause 1 — Primary Class 1 contributions
Orders of the Day — National Insurance Contributions Bill
Mr Gerald Kaufman (Manchester, Gorton, Labour)
Further to that point of order, Sir Michael. Mr. Winterton has drawn your attention to one problem and I wish to draw it to another. The Division bell did not ring on my corridor and I did not know that the Division was on until I happened to look up at the Annunciator. I am sorry to say—and I confess to the Whips accordingly—that I could not vote, and I would therefore be grateful if you could have the functioning of the bells investigated.
