The two desks of the 'No' Lobby (there is an identical pair in the 'Aye' Lobby) are occupied when a division is called by two division clerks. When a division is called, the desks (which are usually kept up against the walls of the Lobby), are drawn out so that they form a barrier behind which the members queue.

The members then pass between the two clerks, that is through the middle between the two desks - as a means of recording their vote. They announce their names distinctly and are then counted by two Members acting as 'Tellers' . In the case of the 'No' Lobby they are against the motion at issue.
