Below is the full list (courtesy of the Labour Whips Twitter account) of the Conservative MPs who rebelled tonight over purdah in the EU referendum. There were 37 in all – an increase of ten since the previous purdah rebellion in June.

There are two of the new intake on the list – Craig MacKinlay (South Thanet) and Tom Pursglove (Corby).  Six entered the Commons in 2010 – Guto Bebb (Aberconwy), Andrew Bridgen (North-West Leicestershire), Karl McCartney (Lincoln), Stephen McPartland (Stevenage), David Nuttall (Bury North) and Andrew Percy (Brigg and Goole).  So eight out of the 37 entered the Commons in 2010 or May this year: there is a generation gap in this vote.
