Prominent Tory eurosceptic Peter Bone also described how a mocked-up photograph pictured his son “being executed by ISIS”.
The senior Conservative told the House of Commons prior to the historic Brexit vote on June 23 he’d had to dial 999 once in his first 11 years as an MP.
Since the EU referendum, the Wellingborough MP said he’d had to ring in an emergency “three times” amid recent death threats to himself and his wife.
Tory MP Peter Bone revealed threats to himself and his family.
Mr Bone added: “I had someone outside chained to the gates of Parliament who had threatened me. I have had two bullet holes—admittedly from air pellets—put in the windows of my office.
“I have had my house attacked. I have had the office windows smashed. The vile stuff that we get on Twitter is unbelievable.”
And, in a shocking revelation, Mr Bone told MPs:“One of the worst things that happened is that some months ago, there was a picture of my youngest son being executed by Isis.
“They had actually taken another child’s photo and mocked it up, but the police rang me up to say, ‘Where is your son?’ I said, ‘Well, I think he’s at school’, and they said, ‘Well, you’d better check’.”
He rebelled against the Government in opposing the changes, as he argued Brexit will increase the importance and workload of MPs.
He said: “The fact is that if we are going to put more work on ourselves because of leaving the EU while at the same time reducing the number of MPs, we will not do the scrutiny properly, and I am afraid that our service to our constituents will go down.
“I feel passionately about that, and that is why we should not reduce the number of MPs.”
Draft legislation brought forward by Pat Glass, the Labour MP for North West Durham, designed to retain the current number of MPs at 650, ultimately secured its second reading as it was backed by 253 votes to 37, a majority of 216.
Labour successfully forced the vote on the legislation by triggering an earlier vote – backed by 257 votes to 35, a majority of 222 – to curtail the debate on the Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill.

Changes proposed by the Boundary Commissions for England and Wales to ensure each constituency – with the exception of a few island seats – has a broadly similar population have been objected to by Tory and Labour MPs.
Labour fears it will lose the most seats under the plans, intended to be introduced in time for a general election in 2020, which would ensure the number of people entitled to vote in each constituency is within five per cent of 74,769.
Ms Glass’s Bill aims to ensure constituencies are within ten per cent of the electoral quota, the Boundary Commissions use more up-to-date data for its ongoing review, and that reviews take place every 10 years rather than five.
The Bill will now progress to committee stage. However, it is unlikely to become law without the support of the Government.
During today’s debate, Labour MPs faced accusations they want to halt the Government-backed proposals because they are “frightened” of losing their seats to hard-left activist group Momentum.
