In spring 2003 parliament had two debates, and votes, on invading Iraq.
Each main vote was preceded by a vote on a "rebel" amendment, opposing war.
These followed the million+ march on February 15, and took place on February 26 and March 18.
This site presents the voting record of every sitting MP, in all four of the 'Divisions'.
