However, Labour, the Lib Dems, SNP and Plaid Cymru are all understood to be planning on voting against or abstaining from the vote – making it very tricky for the PM to achieve the required two-thirds majority.

Parliament is due to be prorogued this week, but MPs could agree to head to the polls after it has returned on October 14.
