The full list of Tory MPs who rebelled against the government in tonight’s vote is here.

This week is shaping up to be the ultimate battle between parliament and Number 10, as rebel MPs attempt to stop a no-deal Brexit in law before parliament is prorogued next week.

On Tuesday the rebels are expected to table an emergency motion to seize control of the parliamentary timetable, and if they succeed, they will then put forward an anti-no deal bill and try to rush it through the House of Commons and Lords.

It is likely that several Tory MPs will rebel against the government on Tuesday, to give parliament the opportunity to stop no deal. But the costs have never been higher for them. As James Forsyth revealed this weekend, Boris Johnson has promised that any MP who votes against the government on Tuesday will be barred from standing at the next election and expelled from the party.

Coffee House will be keeping track of rebel Tory MPs leading up to the crunch vote on Tuesday. Below are those who have promised to rebel, and those who are likely to do so.
