MPs in Parliament have rejected a request for a ceasefire in Gaza.

The vote yesterday (November 15) was called after an SNP amendment to the King’s Speech.

In the end, MPs voted 293 to 125 against the motion – but 56 Labour MPs backed the position, rejecting their party leader’s stance.

They had been ordered to abstain on the SNP move and were told instead to back Sir Keir’s position calling for longer “humanitarian pauses” rather than a ceasefire.

If you were curious as to how your north London MP voted on the Gaza ceasefire amendment, here's a breakdown of where each member stands.

MPs who voted for the ceasefire

  • Diane Abbott (Independent - Hackney North and Stoke Newington)
  • Karen Buck (Labour - Westminster North)
  • Dawn Butler (Labour - Brent Central)
  • Jeremy Corbyn (Independent - Islington North)
  • Barry Gardiner (Labour - Brent North)
  • Kate Osamor (Labour - Edmonton)

MPs who voted against the ceasefire

  • Bob Blackman (Conservative - Harrow East)
  • Mike Freer (Conservative - Finchley and Golders Green)
  • Matthew Offord (Conservative - Hendon)
  • David Simmonds (Conservative - Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner)
  • Theresa Villiers (Conservative - Chipping Barnet)

MPs who abstained on vote

  • Bambos Charalambous (Independent – Enfield Southgate)
  • Feryal Clark (Labour - Enfield North)
  • Meg Hillier (Labour - Hackney South and Shoreditch)
  • David Lammy (Labour - Tottenham)
  • Tulip Siddiq (Labour - Hampstead and Kilburn)
  • Keir Starmer (Labour - Holborn and St Pancras)
  • Gareth Thomas (Labour - Harrow West)
  • Emily Thornberry (Labour - Islington South and Finsbury)
  • Catherine West (Labour - Hornsey and Wood Green)

The Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has argued that a ceasefire would not be appropriate because it would freeze the conflict and embolden Hamas, BBC News reports.

Labour, like the Conservative government, the United States and the European Union, is calling for "humanitarian pauses" to help aid reach Gaza.

Compared with a formal ceasefire, these pauses tend to last for short periods of time, sometimes just a few hours.

They are implemented with the aim of providing humanitarian support only, as opposed to achieving long-term political solutions.
