David Cameron occasionally rebelled against their party in this parliament
Issues on matters of conscience have, by tradition, been the subject of a free vote in the House of Commons.

We have made very good steps forward on migration from outside the EU, which is down by a third and at its lowest level since 1998. That is a success, and we have seen net migration overall come down by around a fifth. What we have not seen is what we saw under Labour, when 2.2 million people net came in over 10 years. That was unacceptable, and we are getting the situation under control.
