Here are the 12 (count 'em) Labour MPs who managed to rebel against the Government in tonight's vote calling for an inquiry in the Iraq war.

  • Harry Cohen (Leyton & Wanstead)
  • Jeremy Corbyn (Islington North)
  • Mark Fisher (Stoke-on-Trent Central)
  • Roger Godsiff (Birmingham Sparkbrook & Small Heath)
  • Glenda Jackson (Hampstead & Highgate)
  • John McDonnell (Hayes & Harlington)
  • Robert Marshall-Andrews (Medway)
  • Alan Simpson (Nottingham South)
  • Sir Peter Soulsby (Leicester South)
  • Dr Gavin Strang (Edinburgh East)
  • Robert Wareing (Liverpool West Derby)
  • Mike Wood (Batley & Spen)

Interesting that Alan Simpson managed to vote against the Government, but his preferred candidate for Labour leader - Michael Meacher - did not.
