Strong views exist on both sides but I believe MPs voting for gay people being able to marry too, is a step forward for our country.
Delighted. Historic vote to celebrate not discriminate in marriage. Lots of happy couples can now set the date! #equalmarriage
It was lovely to see the public clapping in the Strangers Gallery. A moment of joy #equalmarriage
I voted in favour. Vote 400 to 175. Good, measured, respectful debate. #equalmarriage
Tory MP Jason McCartney has praised a number of high-ranking Conservatives for voting in favour of the same-sex marriage bill.
Proud to have joined many colleagues including William Hague, Chris Grayling, IDS & Eric Pickles in voting for #equalmarriage
Whoop!!!!!! 400-175!!!! Now that’s a majority!! A great day in the slow but glorious history of British progress and fairness #GayMarriage
David Burrowes MP, a leading opponent of gay marriage, has said his party's division on the issue reflects the mood of the country.
Conservative Party show that they are in touch with the nation on issue of gay marriage - divided!
The Labour peer John Prescott has tweeted about the same-sex marriage bill passing in the Commons.
The whipped programme motion on the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill received 499 Ayes to the right against 55 Noes to the left, passing with a majority of 444.
Four lib dems voted against.
ESTIMATED Tory MP voting figures on gay marriage Bill - 132 vote FOR Bill, 139 vote AGAINST, rest abstain - evenly divided.
Tory MP Tim Loughton has said he believes around 139 Conservative MPs voted against the same sex marriage bill, and possibly as many as 40 of them abstained.
If true, that would mean that a substantial majority of the party did not vote with the Prime Minister.
He told BBC News that he did not see it as a reflection on David Cameron's lack of authority.
