Government defeated on Business motion

On Thursday 17 October 2019, Boris Johnson’s minority Government was defeated for the 9th time. I voted in favour of an amendment to the Business of the House motion that the House shall sit at 9.30am on Saturday 19 October 2019 to debate the Brexit withdrawal agreement.

The amendment extends the proposed Saturday sitting and allows for multiple amendments to be put to a vote.

The Government was defeated by a majority of 12 (287 Ayes, 275 Noes).
