Some people think there will be an immediate vote on IMF funds in the Commons. My understanding is that the government has full authority from the 11 July vote to almost double our subscription to the IMF. No new enlarged numbers seem to have been agreed at Cannes.
I attended the Committee which considered the increase in money Order on 5 July to raise concerns along with various other Conservative colleagues. Parliament required a vote of the whole House, despite the Committee passing the Order. This was taken on 11 July.
The government got approval for an 88% increase in our subscription to the IMF, to take our total commitment to around £20 billion. The vote was 274 in favour, and 246 against. Those against included 205 Labour MPs and 31 Conservatives. 225 Conservatives voted with the government on a 3 line whip to approve the measure, supported by 48 Lib Dems. 86% of Lib Dems voted, 84.3% of Conservatives, and 80.2% of Labour MPs. I voted against.
