Coffee House

Where every Tory MP stands on Brexit: the full list

As things stand, it looks inevitable that Theresa May’s Brexit deal will be defeated in the House of Commons on Tuesday, but what happens afterwards is the great unknown. While a number of MPs have voiced their opposition to May’s deal and no deal, the majority still have not made clear what they would support in its place. And unless there is a parliamentary majority for another option, Britain will leave the EU on 29 March without a deal by default.

So what is there a majority for in the Commons? In an attempt to find out, Coffee House has compiled the public Brexit position of every single Tory MP. Their views have been split into five different categories: supporting May’s deal, no deal, a second referendum, Norway, or ‘Undeclared’.

First, some notes about the categories:

  • We have presumed that those who are currently supporting May’s deal will continue to do so (unless they say otherwise) if it returns to the Commons.
  • Some of the MPs supporting the Norway option will vote for May’s deal on Tuesday, but then will push for their preferred Brexit outcome once it is defeated.
  • Some of those listed as ‘no deal’ would prefer a Canada-style free trade deal, but we have presumed this will not be negotiable in time for Brexit day. Therefore their second choice of ‘no deal’ is listed as their official position
  • The ‘Undeclared’ are MPs who do not support May’s deal (primarily because of the backstop) but have not offered an alternative position, and those who have not made their position public.

The current totals and the full list of MPs are below. Any position apart from no deal (which happens by default) will need 320 votes from Conservative and opposition MPs to achieve a majority in the Commons.

May’s deal: 177
No deal: 58
Undeclared: 65
Second referendum: 9
Norway: 7
