This vote was on the motion:
That Sir Peter Lloyd be discharged from the House of Commons Commission and Mr. Eric Forth be appointed a member of the Commission under the House of Commons (Administration) Act 1978.
Eric Forth was a colourful and sometimes controversial member of the House, and those voting No were exercising a protest against his appointment.
