Let's define defeat as the bill not passing that session.

Wikipedia lists a number of successful filibusters but most (if not all in that list) appear to be on private bills or advanced by a minority party. Wikipedia lists one unsuccessful attempt to filibuster (in the House of Lords) the government-backed Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Act 2011.

So when was the last time that a government-backed bill was defeated by filibuster in the UK?
