Prime Minister Boris Johnson isbringing his Brexit deal to the House of Commons today, with the hopes of receiving MPs’ support to move forward and deliver Brexit in the nick of time. The Prime Minister said he is “confident” he can win a majority, but it will certainly be day of high political drama.
What time is the session?
MPs will gather in the House of Commons at 9.30am BST.
Peers in the House of Lords sit at 10am and are due to finish at 3pm.
All eyes will be on the Commons, however, and the timings are still totally up in the air.

He will then take questions on his Brexit deal from MPs for a couple of hours – expect a lot of jeering.
The main debate on the deal will follow that, opened by a Government minister.
Speaker John Bercow will reveal which amendments have been selected.
Voting on the deal is expected to begin after 2.30pm.
Any amendments selected will be voted on first.
