Cameron faces rebellion from backbenchers over immigration

David Cameron faces a significant backbench rebellion later with Conservative MPs calling for tougher measures on immigration.

A debate is underway in the House of Commons after the Home Secretary Theresa May tabled a last-minute amendment to the Immigration Bill.

The change would enable her to strip foreign-born terrorism suspects of their British citizenship, even if it leaves them stateless. However, other Tory MPs want the measures to go further.

Ross Hawkins reports.
