It’s going to be another long day in the UK parliament


Here is the order paper for today


Boris Johnson is going to be tabling an election bill motion, after which looks set to be debated by lawmakers before a vote takes place at the end of the day – similar to yesterday.

The difference this time around is that traditionally, lawmakers will have days to debate on any bill put forward. However, this time around they have to do it all in one sitting.

Regardless, unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures. And if the motion is successful, it will be the first December election in the UK for over a century.

The key thing to watch when the motion is announced will be the date of the election.

Johnson wants a 12 December election but the SNP and Lib Dems are more willing to support one on 9 December – which requires parliament to be dissolved by this Friday.
