56 and counting

There were a total of four Labour revolts over the Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill on 9 January, as well as splits within both the other two main parties. The Labour revolts involved a total of 44 rebels, of whom 32 were voting against the Brown government for the first time. We now make it 56 Labour MPs who have voted against the whip since Gordon Brown became Prime Minister. This short briefing paper (pdf, 40k) lists the rebels.
