Boris Johnson narrowly succeeded in getting the Commons to back social care reforms despite a sizeable Tory rebellion over concerns it will hit the poorest in England.

Dozens of Conservative MPs refused to back the policy on Monday night after the flagship plans were changed with a cap on care costs being less generous than expected.

Ministers were unable to say whether the new £86,000 cap would fulfil an election pledge to guarantee no-one would have to sell their home to afford care.

Mr Johnson’s working majority of 80 MPs was significantly reduced with 19 Conservatives rebelling and 68 failing to vote.

It means the change passed with a majority of just 26 votes at 272 to 246.

So who voted in favour of the social care reforms and who voted against?
