MPs voted against an amendment to the Immigration Bill on Monday which attempted to force the government to allow 3,000 unaccompanied Syrian child refugees into the UK from Europe.

The amendment, tabled by Labour's Lord Dubs - a survivor of the Holocaust - was rejected by 294 to 276, having been backed by Labour, the SNP and the Liberal Democrats.

A few Conservative MPs rebelled in favour of the Labour lords' amendment, and you can browse the results in the map and list below (Note: Ayes - in red - are votes against admitting child refugees to the UK):

Conservative ministers voted down the amendment on the principle that it could encourage families to send children abroad alone, putting them into the hands of human traffickers, and they should instead be drawn from camps near the conflict zones in Syria.

James Brokenshire, Conservative MP for Old Bexley and Sidcup, said:

Our starting principle is that we must put the best interests of children first and avoid any policy that places children at additional risk or encourages them to place their lives in the hands of people traffickers and criminal gangs.

In any response we need to be careful not to inadvertently create a situation in which families see an advantage in sending children ahead, alone and in the hands of traffickers, putting their lives at risk by attempting treacherous sea crossings to Europe.

But Yvette Cooper, chair of Labour’s taskforce on refugees, said after the debate:

It is deeply disappointing that the government has rejected the Dubs amendment – albeit with a reduced majority. Thousands of children are sleeping rough in Europe tonight, vulnerable to exploitation and abuse and Britain should not be turning its back.

Alf Dubs will keep pressing this issue in the Lords as we must do our bit to help.
