Analysis by Jonathan Isaby

Here's a full party-by-party breakdown of how MPs voted in the division on votes for prisoners last night.

NB: In terms of those who did not participate in the division, clearly I am not able to differentiate between those making a deliberate abstention and those who were simply not in Westminster due to commitments elsewhere, planned or otherwise.

Read the highlights of the debate here.
