North Wiltshire MP James Gray voted against yesterday's Additional Covid-19 Restrictions: Fair Economic Support motion.

The motion, put forward by the Labour Party, called for a 'fair one nation deal' to give areas being moved into higher local restrictions the financial support they need to support businesses and workers affected.

It included increasing furlough payments to workers from 66 per cent to 80 per cent and giving additional support to businesses which may have to close or would lose business.

It followed the breakdown in negotiations between the Government and Greater Manchester, with Labour leader Keir Starmer accusing the Government of treating the North with "contempt".

The motion was voted down by 340 votes to 261.

Cotswold MP Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown did not vote.
