Letta wins confidence vote in Lower House
Motion called after Berlusconi's party withdrew support11 December, 16:03
Another confidence vote in the Senate, where the government has a much smaller majority, takes place later Wednesday.
The government will collapse if it loses the vote.
It is expected to survive thanks to the support of the New Centre Right (NCD) party, a group of pro-government moderates led by Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Angelino Alfano who split from Berlusconi loyalists last month.
