The Government's watered-down motion on the principle of military intervention in Syria was defeated tonight by 13 votes.
9 Lib Dems rebelled, along with 30 Conservatives. Embarrassingly, two Government Ministers – Justine Greening and Mark Simmonds – accidentally failed to vote because they apparently either didn't hear the bell or were in a meeting, while Ken Clarke couldn't attend due to "logistical family reasons".
The 30 Conservative rebels are as follows:
David TC Davies
Nick de Bois
Dr Phillip Lee
Dr Julian Lewis
Anne Marie Morris
Sir Richard Shepherd
Sir Peter Tapsell
Dr Sarah Wollaston
[**UPDATE** This list was originally published including Tim Loughton – rather than rebelling, he voted in the Aye and the No lobbies in order to formally register an abstention.]
There'll be more analysis from us in the morning – for now, a lot to consider in an historic defeat inflicted on the Prime Minister by his own MPs.
