Tellers for the Ayes included John Gray so he should really be added

After the amendment was defeated there was a vote on principle of the bill. Here the number of Tory rebels fell from 33 to 24 (again including James Gray as the teller.) However they also included John Redwood and Sir Richard Shepherd. So I make that a total of 35 rebels.

The BBC also lists 46 Tory MPs who were absent. But we can’t assume they were all rebels. The list includes the Prime Minister.
