How Essex MPs voted on the Opposition Day vote on the bedroom tax
December 18, 2014 4 Comments
In case you were wondering how our local Members of Parliament voted on the Opposition Day vote on the bedroom tax :-
|Basildon and Billericay||John Baron||No|
|Brentwood and Ongar||Eric Pickles||No|
|Castle Point||Rebecca Harris||No|
|Harwich and North Essex||Bernard Jenkin||No|
|Rayleigh and Wickford||Mark Francois||No|
|Rochford and Southend East||James Duddridge||Absent|
|Saffron Walden||Alan Haselhurst||No|
|South Basildon and East Thurrock||Stephen Metcalfe||No|
|Southend West||David Amess||No|
Only one Conservative MP (Andrew Percy) and no Liberal Democrats voted for the Labour motion (Let’s scrap the Bedroom Tax by Christmas).
I think it is pretty clear where the Conservatives stand, and that the Liberal Democrats are backing them all the way.
