LONDON (Reuters) - Government ministers who defied instructions by abstaining in a vote in Britain’s parliament on Wednesday will not be sacked, Guardian reporter Dan Sabbagh said on Twitter.

A government source did not confirm the report. Several cabinet ministers, including business secretary Greg Clark, abstained on the vote, which ended in defeat for the government.
