Cooper Amendment Defeated 321 to 298

Yvette Cooper’s amendment trying to seize control of Parliament has been defeated by 321 to 298. A surprisingly comfortable majority of 23…

17 Tories rebelled, defying their manifesto commitments to Brexit voting in favour of giving a Labour MP control rather than their own party’s government – Heidi Allen, Guto Bebb, Nick Boles, Ken Clarke, Jonathan Djanogly, George Freeman, Justine Greening, Dominic Grieve, Sam Gyimah, Phillip Lee, Oliver Letwin, Antoinette Sandbach, Nicholas Soames, Anna Soubry, John Stevenson, Ed Vaizey, Sarah Wollaston.

However there were 14 Labour MPs who also rebelled to vote against the Cooper amendment – Ian Austin, Kevin Barron, Ronnie Campbell, Rosie Cooper, Jim Fitzpatrick, Caroline Flint, Roger Godsiff, Stephen Hepburn, Kate Hoey, John Mann, Dennis Skinner, Laura Smith, Gareth Snell, Graham Stringer – as well as now independent Frank Field and Kelvin Hopkins.

11 further Labour MPs abstained on the motion – Tracy Brabin, Judith Cummins, Gloria De Piero, Yvonne Fovargue, Mike Kane, Emma Lewell-Buck, Jim McMahon, Melanie Onn, Ruth Smeeth, John Spellar and Stephen Twigg.

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
