It's rare that a motion from a backbencher gets much attention in Parliament, but Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth's motion for Parliament to study when life begins hit a political nerve in the capital.

We've covered how some of the most high-profile Members of Parliament voted, and now we'll take a step back to look at how the House voted as a whole.

This motion, as a vote of conscience, was not whipped, so MPs were allowed to vote in the way they felt appropriate. However, the leadership of each party made it clear how they wanted their members to vote.
