Brexit: Parliament to be suspended after election vote

Political Editor

After tonight, this is it for parliament until October 14th, as Downing Street confirmed business will be suspended until then.

If Boris Johnson gets his way tonight, that could be just a day before a general election, although his second attempt is just as unlikely to go through as the first.

MPs voted on and passed an emergency motion that will force Dominic Cummings and other Downing Street advisers to publish all correspondence,  including private emails and messages, about their plans for no deal and proroguing parliament.
