The SPEAKER —Pursuant to the resolution of 29 August 2002, I put the question:

That this bill be now read a second time.

A division having been called and the bells being rung—


The SPEAKER —Given the sensitivity of the issue, can I indicate to members that this is the second reading on the Research Involving Embryos Bill as agreed to on 29 August. Those who are in support of the second reading are, of course, choosing to move to my right and those who are opposed to the second reading will be on my left. If the bill passes, there will be opportunity for debate on the consideration in detail stage following this division.
