The majority of MPs voted in favour of a referendum on the voting system for parliamentary elections, with the options of retaining first past the post or moving to an alternative-vote system, to be held no later than 31 October 2011.
Technically the vote was on adding a new clause, clause 88, to the Constitutional Reform and Governance Bill
Votes by party, red entries are votes against the majority for that party.
What is Tell? '+1 tell' means that in addition one member of that party was a teller for that division lobby.
