The 10 Conservative MPs voting for the rebel amendment and against the party’s stance on ID cards were:

John Bercow (Buckingham)

Angela Browning (Tiverton & Honiton)

William Cash (Stone)

David Curry (Skipton & Ripon)

Nick Gibb (Bognor Regis & Littlehampton)

Damien Green (Ashford)

Edward Leigh (Gainsborough)

72 Tory MPs, almost half the Tory parliamentary party, did (as advised by Tory whips) their Christmas shopping instead of voting. So the Tories were hypocritical, unlike the 55 Liberal MPs who lived up to there party’s name for once.
