Public Whip says the result was Ayes 214 No 330
Hansard says Ayes 217, Noes 330.

The error presumably arises from the way Public Whip is dealing with "boths" - there are three in this division.

I think the overall Aye / No count ought match Hansard.

Counting the names in Hansard, there were actually 333 no votes (including the 3 boths). So Public Whip is correct, excluding the boths it was 214/330, including the boths it was 217/333, and Hansard appears to be incorrect in its summary figures.
