How MPs voted as new coronavirus restrictions passed by Commons

MPs have approved the Covid-19 regulations that will implement three levels of restrictions in England as of Wednesday.

The vote was 291 to 78, a majority of 213, and came after Labor abstained.

The decision was taken tonight after hours of debate in the House of Commons.

The new scheme will enter into force on Wednesday.

In total there were 53 Conservative MPs who voted against the Covid-19 restrictions.

They were joined by 15 Labor MPs, eight DUP members and two independent MPs.

The restrictions will put 99 percent of England in the strictest Tier 2 and Tier 3 restrictions.

The levels are reviewed every two weeks. Boris, Mr Johnson, has also promised MPs a new vote on whether or not to keep the entire system after Feb. 2.

He said: “We welcome tonight’s vote endorsing our winter plan, ending national restrictions and returning England to a layered system.

“This will help safeguard last month’s gains and keep the virus under control.

“We will continue to work with MPs who have expressed concerns in recent days.”
