Syria vote: Which Tory and Lib Dem MPs rebelled?

The moment when it was announced the government's motion had been defeated

The government's motion said the House of Commons "deplores" the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime and "agrees that a strong humanitarian response is required from the international community and that this may, if necessary, require military action".

It said any such action would be "legal, proportionate and focused on saving lives by preventing and deterring further use of Syria's chemical weapons" - but the motion was defeated by 285 votes to 272.

Here is a list of the 39 MPs from the coalition parties who voted against it:
