Pairing in United Kingdom

Pairing Meaning, as used in the UK Parliament

Pairing is an arrangement between two Members of the Parliament of opposing parties to not vote in a particular division. This enables an Member of Parliament to be absent without affecting the result of the vote as they effectively cancel each other out. Pairing is an informal arrangement which is not recognised by the House of Commons but must be registered with the Whips. Pairing is not allowed in divisions of great political importance.
