MPs reject Tory rebels' plan to deport foreign criminals

A bid by rebel Tory MPs to stop foreign criminals using European human rights law to avoid deportation has been defeated, with MPs voting 241 to 97 against the plan.

But MPs did vote in favour of Home Secretary Theresa May's plan to strip foreign-born terror suspects of UK citizenship by 297 to 34.

The shadow home office minister David Hanson told Norman Smith that Home Secretary Theresa May had left it to Liberal Democrat and Labour ministers to defeat the rebel motion - "even though she knows it's the wrong thing to do."
