The structure of the bound Votes and Proceedings is as follows – the first volume contains the index and the actual record (minutes) of what happened in the house each day.

The remainder of the bound volumes for that session consist of the reports or parliamentary papers that are listed in the index, which can fill multiple volumes (and thousands of pages).

So the second, third (etc) volumes for each session have been broken up into the separate reports and those reports are likely to be found in the parliamentary papers database.
