Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen
Theresa May has held a meeting with Donald Tusk, president of the European council, and Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European commission, at the EU meeting in Sofia this morning.
In business questions the SNP’s Pete Wishart asked for an assurance that, when the EU withdrawal bill does come back to the Commons, the government would allow proper time for debate. He said he was worried that the government might try to minimise the number of votes by lumping various amendments together.
Leadsom said the government would allow “ample time” for debate when MPs considered the Lords amendments.
