We will have a proper look at the Hansard list after it's published, but in the meantime it's worth noting that Iain Duncan Smith, Liam Fox and Owen Paterson supported the amendment in the lobbies earlier this afternoon.

These are probably the three leading representatives of the right in Cabinet, and their united presence is bound to be noted.  A senior source told me earlier that at least two of them - Duncan Smith and Paterson - spoke in advance.  Fox indicated in advance that he'd probably support the amendment.
