The vote is read out in the House of Commons on Tuesday evening


Boris Johnson suffered the largest backbench rebellion of his premiership after more than 50 Tory MPs voted against the new three-tier system of coronavirus regulations.

The measures were passed by 291 votes to 78, paving the way for 99 per cent of England to be placed under the toughest Tier 2 and 3 restrictions when England’s national lockdown ended.

Sir Keir Starmer had asked his MPs to abstain on the vote, all-but guaranteeing the restrictions would be approved, although 15 Labour MPs eventually voted against the proposals.

Mr Hancock said he was “glad” the tier restrictions had passed through the House of Commons.

He told Sky News: “I ask everybody to not only abide by the tiering rules but respect the personal responsibility all of us have to try to reduce the transmission of this virus, especially with the end in sight and now that we’ve got this vaccine actually being delivered next week.”
