How Devon’s Tory MPs voted on fracking, the whole lot, except for Sir Geoffrey Cox

(Probably on business or hols in the Caribbean)

For what did these “frackers” trash their green and net zero credentials?

It appears we still don’t really know the true voting numbers, such was the chaos on Wednesday night. – Owl

The motion to secure Commons time to consider legislation to ban fracking, as put forward by Labour, was defeated by 230 votes to 326, majority 96.

The numbers announced in the chamber did not match the numbers on the division list released by the Commons authorities.

The list released after the Commons vote contained 228 names in the ayes and 319 names in the noes.

It may be updated further by parliamentary officials to include any missing names to ensure the numbers match the ones announced in the chamber, or it could be a counting error by the whips.

The division list showed 36 Conservative MPs in total did not take part in the fracking vote, although this does not automatically equate to an abstention – but in many cases will be.
