REVEALED: Full list of MPs who voted against Rishi Sunak’s new Brexit deal

Despite a rebellion from some Tory MPs and the DUP, Rishi Sunak’s new Brexit deal has passed its first Commons test. MPs approved regulations to implement the Stormont brake section of the Windsor Framework by a vote of 515 to 29, with a majority of 486.

According to the division list, 22 Conservative MPs voted against the Government.

Former Prime Ministers Boris Johnson and Liz Truss were among them, as was former Conservative leader Sir Iain Duncan-Smith, former Cabinet minister Jacob Rees-Mogg, and former party chairman Sir Jake Berry.

Six DUP MPs and Andrew Bridgen, an independent, also voted against the brake.

A further 48 Conservative MPs abstained, though some would have been permitted to be absent from Westminster.

The European Research Group (ERG) of Conservative Brexiteers said ahead of the vote that it was “strongly recommending” that its members vote against the regulations.

Labour voted in favour of the brake provision in the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal.

The mechanism would allow Stormont Assembly MLAs to formally express concerns about the imposition of new EU laws in Northern Ireland, which could result in the UK Government vetoing their implementation in the region.

Northern Ireland Secretary Chris Heaton-Harris told MPs today in the Commons: “Without this measure, Northern Ireland would continue to have full and automatic dynamic alignment with EU goods rules, with no say for the Northern Ireland Assembly and no veto for amending or replacing those measures.”
