The Government has won a Commons vote on its plans to reorganise the Army.
Tory Rebels, supported by Labour, tabled an amendment calling for a pause for the coalition to reconsider.
But the Government won the vote comfortably by 306 votes to 252 - a majority of 54.
Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said that despite opposition to the plans, Britain "cannot go back", and the reorganisation would take place.
A tweet from Labour Whips said it looked like 12 Tories and 1 Lib Dem rebel voted against the Government.
