Maastricht Treaty Rebels Win

Conservative civil war over Europe is an attempt to block the Maastricht Treaty. Rees-Mogg challenges the prime minister's European plans - but this wasn't Theresa May and Jacob Rees-Mogg but her predecessor, John Major, and his father, William, Lord Rees-Mogg.

The battle was not over Brexit but the Maastricht Treaty. Tory rebels vote with Labour to amend the treaty to ensure decision making members of the EU are "elected" members.
