Gravesham MP Adam Holloway quit his job as a ministerial aide yesterday as he joined a Conservative rebellion to back calls for a referendum on the European Union.
Prime Minister David Cameron suffered his largest rebellion during the five hour debate with official figures released today revealing that 79 of the party’s 305 lawmakers voted against the government, with two abstaining.
Mr Holloway, who was an aide to Europe minister David Lidington, told the Commons he could not go back on commitments he made to his constituents.
