Labour’s reasoned amendment to the welfare bill failed to pass tonight by 208 votes to 308 votes. The party line was then to abstain on the bill’s vote – but 48 MPs (including leadership candidate Jeremy Corbyn, and London Mayor candidates Diane Abbott, Sadiq Khan and David Lammy), defied the whip to vote against it anyway.
The full list of MPs are here:
Sir Gerald Kaufman
Rebecca Long Bailey
Kelvin Hopkins (Teller)
