MPs rejected the motion by 316 votes to 221, giving the government a majority of 94.
The Prime Minister pledged a “package of measures to bring transparency on the issue”, including a review which will have “full access” to Home Office information. The Opposition’s motion was comfortably defeated by 316 votes to 221 – a majority of 95 – with 180 of Labour’s 258 MPs voting in favour. A further two of its MPs acted as tellers for the ayes. A total of 306 Conservative MPs opposed the motion, prompting shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott to accuse Mrs May of missing an opportunity to start to “right the wrongs” done against the Windrush generation.

Many publications facing an uncertain future can no longer afford to fund it, meaning journalists are losing the ability to hold the rich and powerful to account.
