Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I would like you to give me a bit of an explanation of what is going on.

I have been observing the procedure in the past few votes and I have the feeling that something strikes me as somewhat irregular at first glance. You are asking which members are for and which against, and then you are moving immediately on to the recorded vote, without a decision from you as to whether the yeas or the nays have it, and as to whether five members have risen to call for a recorded vote.
