Do votes have to be taken in a certain order?

When voting on a motion can the chair ask for those Against first, then Abstenstions, then those For, instead of For/Against/Abstains?

It is certainly unconventional, but unless the standing orders specifically direct how votes should be taken, then it appears that it would matter for the chairman's discretion.
