John Redwood MP voted in accordance with the Conservative Party whip.
John writes: I support the government as it urges all involved to avoid civilian casualties, to obey the laws of war, to provide humanitarian pauses and facilitate humanitarian aid. I support its diplomatic work to press the humanitarian case and to seek to get UK citizens out safely.
"Like those who send emails about loss of life in Gaza I want to see an end to the deaths of civilians in Gaza. Like those who send me emails about the attacks on Israeli civilians and about the hostages I wish to see an end to those attacks and a release of the hostages.
"Of course I would like a ceasefire to end the violence. This can only come when the two sides can agree one. It cannot be imposed from the UK."
