Commons Speaker John Bercow has rejected a Government bid to hold a "meaningful vote" on Boris Johnson's Brexit deal on Monday.

All eyes were on the Commons Speaker as he decided whether to allow the vote to take place amid concerns that he would reject it because of parliamentary rules.

In his latest Commons defeat, Mr Johnson abandoned plans for a meaningful vote on Saturday when MPs backed a move forcing him to ask Brussels for a further delay.

But because the deal had been debated, there were concerns that Mr Bercow could block a vote coming back so soon because of rules over the same matter being discussed twice.

Mr Bercow rejected the vote, saying: "It would be repetitive and disorderedly to do so."
