Rebel leader Helen Goodman has confirmed that 48 Labour MPs voted against sending the Government's Welfare Bill to a second reading.
The former minister tabled a rebel amendment to the Bill but it was not selected for debate and vote despite being signed by more than 50 backbenchers.
However, she and 47 other Labour MPs ignored interim leader Harriet Harman's orders to abstain on the main second reading vote, which the Conservatives won 308 to 124, majority 184.
Of the 124 there were 48 Labour MPS who voted No to giving the #Tory Welfare Reform and Work Bill a second reading this evening.
