What happens next in Parliament?

On September 9, the Government tabled another motion under the Fixed-term Parliaments Act which seeks to trigger an early general election.

Boris Johnson failed in his bid to do the same last week.

But he could have better luck now the Bill to delay Brexit looks set to receive Royal Assent.

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.
