12 June was a big day in the House of Commons for Brexit as the debate and voting took place on a long list of amendments proposed by the House of Lords.
The constituency border between Reading East and Reading West, and consequently the border between opposition (Labour) and Government (Conservative), puts Whitley Ward in Reading West and all other south Reading Wards in Reading East. The boundary runs down the Kennet before diving east along Rose Kiln Lane and Long Barn Lane and then south down Northumberland Avenue.
A vote can take place at any point in a debate (a ‘division’). You need to review the context of each vote to understand what was being voted on. In divisions 166 to 176, the government disagreed with single House of Lords amendments and so MPs were asked to ‘agree to disagree’. In division 177 the government accepted a list of Lords amendments.
