Brexit: Meaningful vote timetable

MPs will vote on the withdrawal agreement after 7pm. Picture by Laura Lean/PA Wire

TODAY will see MPs continue to discuss the merits of the withdrawal agreement before the debate is brought to a close around 7pm with a final pitch from Theresa May.

Voting will commence soon after but before MPs deliver their verdict, they must first deal with a series of amendments.

Each amendment, and we don't yet know how many there will be, will take around 15 minutes.

The amendment attracting most attention is from Labour backbencher Hilary Benn and essentially it says ‘no to this deal and no to no deal'.

But even if MPs back this, the so-called 'meaningful vote' will still take place and is expected between 8pm and 9pm – though it could be delayed until later.
